We All Scream

We all scream for Pure Innocence. She is the cutest thing. I just love her and so does everyone I talk to about her. I think she's taking over my blog but that's okay by me.
For this card I decided to finally try Jen Del Muro's sketch challenge. I must have looked at her blog I {Heart} to Stamp hundreds of times and for no reason I can think of never tried her sketch. Well this week My Favorite Things is sponsoring her challenge so I just have to play, after all they are my favorite.

How'd'ya like that ice cream charm. Isn't that just adorable and perfect for this stamp. I just had to work that in even if it isn't in the sketch. Another little thing you may not notice is that for her shoes I covered the area with Ranger Glossy Accents to make them look like patent leather and I drew a pair of lacey edged ankle socks on her. She just seemed to need them.

In my ramblings around the internet I found another blog challenge that piqued my interest. When I saw this photograph on the Play Date Cafe I was bowled over, I just love pink and gray, throwing in black and white only makes it that much yummier. It's funny that the writer mentioned how these colors reminded her of when she was a child because whenever I see them I am reminded of the potholders I made in these colors. I did love this combination even back then. I still love this combination.
Here's the deets:
Stamp - My Favorite Things, Pure Innocence - Make Mine a Double
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black; Ranger Tattered Rose sponged on the card stock
Paper - Martha Stewart "Playful Pink Paper Pad" dp; Making Memories "Black and White Embellishments" dp; Bazzill gray cs
