The Sketchy Challenges DT - Sandra's Sketch

 Woohoo!!!  It's time for another challenge at The Sketchy Challenges and this fortnight we have a gorgeous sketch by the lovely Sandra for you to play with!!  I've made a birthday card for my Mum with the new Tailor Tilda from the summer kit!  I was so thrilled when I saw her as my Mum loves to sew!  I've used papers from Tim Holtz that I suddenly remembered about as they have dress making pattern designs on them - perfect :)!
 I've coloured Tilda with copics and added glossy accents to the sewing machine and white gel pen to her cheeks and the dots on her fabric.
 I added some gorgeous flowers and lace from my stash along with a couple of buttons to add to the sewing theme of the card.
 This flower was created with some aida fabric and a doohickey peony die.
 I used Tim Holtz' sewing room die for the tailor's dummy and cotton reel and added some gorgeous seam binding and button twine from The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop, along with a couple of pins.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this fortnight at The Sketchy Challenges!  Pop over to the blog to see my teamies' stunning cards!  Thanks for looking! x

Ooh, I'm so jealous that you're already playing with the new collection...LOL. Gorgeous card, Jane. Love the shabby chic look. Fabulous coloured as always. Your embellishments are perfect--the spool of thread and pins are brilliant ideas!

Hi Jane ❤
Oh wow! This is simply a masterpiece, you're mom is going to adore this!
This is sooo typically Jane: your creations always are very thought through (if you know what I mean ;)) Not one single decoration is added to this without that special thought to it! Love the flowers made out of fabric and that mannequin doll! And of course - Tilda is so sweet! She looks adorable and is inked to perfection!

Big hugs! ❤
