Mercy's Sketch and the Ways to Use it Challenge

Hello everyone...wouldn't ya know I get my cards finished and start to upload to Splitcoast and the site goes down...what's up with that????? I guess I took too long looking for my stick pins....LOL!!! That's what the WT challenge was this morning and I knew I had some but where to find them!!! I used Mercy's Tuesday Challenge #72 for the layout....she always has the best sketches!!! The sweet cherry image from Taylored Expressions Berries and Cherries set was colored with copics and a beauty mark was added with a white gel pen. The paper and chipboard stickers are from Cosmo Cricket's Early Bird Collection and the stick pin, old button, twine, ribbon, and lace finish it off.
Recipe: Stamps: Taylored Expressions Berries and Cherries
Paper: White, Vanilla, Real Red, Cosmo Cricket Early Bird
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, So Saffron for sponging around cherries
Accessories: Cosmo Cricket Early Bird Chipboard, Old Button, Twine, Stick Pin, Lace, Ribbon, Dimensionals

Aren't these little girls adorable...the image is called Sisters 002 from Rubbernecker Stamps
The image was stamped with Chocolate Chip onto vanilla paper and the dp is from K&Co. I added lots of vintagy stuff like the ribbon rose, lace rose, sheer ribbon, old button with twine, pearl flourish, Martha Stewart Punched leaves, and the stick pin with pearls and crystals.

Wonderful cards, GF, but I really had to laugh, because I spent a lot of time looking for my pins too. I know I'll find them when I least expect to. Does this mean we have TOO MUCH STUFF??????????? HeeHee.

OK, since you and Anne obviously have too much stuff, you need to put it all to good use on the Belli Challenge! LOL!

Two gorgeous cards, my friend! Love them both!
