Have faith in yourself

Good morning!  Well we had some trouble leaving the dock last night and so we are still here in the marina.  The kids ate dinner on board, watched the Germans trounce the Greeks in soccer (a bit of bleakness here) and then went out clubbing until the early hours of the morning...  actually they didn't even leave the boat until 1am.  They are all sleeping now.

I have a Little Miss Muffet Stamps card to share today using the rubber version of Spring Whisper who comes with two little bunny rabbits extra.  Don't forget you have until Wednesday midnight CST to purchase her in her digital form before that version of her is retired forever!  And there is 'Barabara-is-out-of-town-so-there-will-be-a-delay' special on at the moment... you will receive one free Sugar n Spice digi with every order you make this weekend!

Here's my card:

It's hard to see in the first picture, but the creamy background paper she is against is a lovely pearlescent paper with white clouds on it... it's a Hambly Screenprint.  The other papers are from Crate Paper and Echo Park.  The ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl and the corner embellie is from Make it Crafty.  The sentiment is from Cosmo Cricket.

I based this card on this week's sketch from Feeling Sketchy, but I had to alter is just a little bit so that she wasn't sitting in mid-air.  Here's the sketch:

Here's a close-up of Spring Whisper:

And here are the copics I used:

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Feeling Sketchy: Sketch 
Inspire me Fridays: Anything Goes

Okay, gotta run!  I'm off to help the boys sort out the problem.

Oh, and here's this one too - I should have worked backwards with my commenting. LOL This is the ribbon - I love that texture and great way to have her sitting on the red. Wonderful sentiment too!
