CPS155 - Congratulations

Well, I'm back from vacation and have about a week to craft up some cards before I head back to Florida with my college softball team for their Spring Training in Orlando.

This is a card I made using the CPS Card Sketch #155.
I did turn my sketch sideways though and through the kindness of Barbara Anders heart - she mailed me a few stamped images of this MFT gal sitting behind her desk. (THANK YOU BARBARA!!)
I paper pieced the dress by cutting out one of the images sent to me and tracing it on patterned paper. I popped up her arm so it's dimensional. I colored the image with my prisma pencils and gamsol and added a few touches of silver and black embossing pen to the chair.
I used Papertrey Ink paper for the entire card, a half of a oval scallop punch and an MFT sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Great card. I like how you've turned the sketch and given her a little "awning" above her work space. Great dress too!!!! Thanks for your comments on my blog also. Have a great day.
