The Sweet Stop Sketch 121/ Blog Candy Winners!!

I first want to apologize for missing last weeks sketch at The Sweet Stop.  I was having a loss of mojo or creativity and no matter how hard I tried I couldn't complete a card that I was happy with.  I took a couple days break and jumped back in and got my cards done for this week and am feeling a bit better.  Actually I have to say I kind of love my card this week but more about that in just a minute.
Thank you to all that entered my Blog Candy.  I am trying to make my way to all of my new followers blogs so please be patient with me my computer time has been so limited lately but I can't wait to meet new friends in blog land.  Now for the winners the Blog Candy Goes to Edel and the $25.00 Gift Certificate to All That Scraps goes to sparklingblackrose (Elaine). Congrats, please email me your information so I can get those things out to you.
 And now my card for this weeks The Sweet Stop Sketch SSS121.
Isn't this just the cutest stamp?  I love it and it is brand new by Elisabeth Bell Called Secret Garden Peeker and it is available at Susana's Custom Art & Card Design.  I had to splurge and get this entire collection.  I colored her with Copics and added a few doodles of rocks and grass along with clouds that I  sponged with my favorite sky color Twilight from CTMH....hummm I wonder if I like because of the name?:)  I did a little bit of paper piecing on her shoes and belt and distressed all of the edges.  The ribbon was actually all cream but I colored the center part with B95.  The flower was created using the Mother's Day Bouquet cartridge on my Cricuit.  I cut them out on cream paper and then sketched the flower centers and edges with B95/B93 and colored the pearl with YG63.  The swirls are 2 different dies from Sizzix.  The sentiment is from C.C. Designs HERE and I think that is about it.
Clothes-B95, B93, B91/YG67, G94 Hair-E35, E31, E50 Fence- E44, E43, E42 Grass/Ground-YG91, YG93, YG63, E40/GG13

Hi Shelby!

Often it doesn`t take more than a couple of days to get in the creating game again, lol...lucky for us, course your card is absolutely gorgeous. That stamp is absolutely adorable. i actually have that same ribbon as you have used and i think it looks a bit dull. So to colour it is a fab idea. Thanks for sharing, hun. Love the colours you have used for this card too. Hugs...Mona
