Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #56

Oh wow... I think this is my favorite Sophie EVER! Of course I had to seize the moment to add pink and shimmer...right?

There is another reason this Sophie is my favorite. All the proceeds are being donated to the Childhood Brain Tumor Foundation in honor of one AMAZING little girl's fight with cancer. How awesome is that? You can read about Kelly Laude here. You can get this adorable stamp from eP here. Thanks to Kristi Ferro at Hanna Stamps and Joy and Daisy at eclectic Paperie. You are amazing and loving women and YOU ROCK !! I hope you can help..... Let's STAND UP TO CANCER!!

Okay, back to Beate's Weekend Sketch. I LOVE this sketch! I need to make more cards this size. So, you know the drill... check out Beate's sketch team, and then get to work and join us! Here's the sketch:

Here's the sketch team:

Charmaine Ikach
Jenn Balcer
Laurie Schmidlin

Lori Craig

MaryJo Albright

Sharon Harnist

Here is the recipe for the card:

Stamps: Ballet Sophie (Hanna Stamps), Flower Power, Sketched Sentiments (Lizzie Anne Designs).
Paper: Kraft, Rose Red, Georgia Peach Designer Paper, Whisper White (Stampin'Up!).
Ink: Ranger Distress Soot Black, Copic Markers, Craft Whisper White.
Other: Shimmerz Magenta, Bubble Gum, Coffee, and Angel Wings Paint, Pastel Raspberry Liquid Pearls, Paint Brush, Dimensionals, Scallop Edge Punch, Gingham Pink and Creamy Caramel ribbon, Janome Sew Mini, Scor-pal, Cuttlebug With Love Embossing Border.

I wish you could see the shimmer with the paint. I added the Bubble Gum Pink to her tights, the Angel Wings to her shoes, the Magenta to just the bottom of her tu tu, and the Coffee to her antlers! Her tu tu is paper pieced from the Georgia Peach designer paper.

I stamped almost all day yesterday, so I have stuff to show you all weekend! It was SO strange having the house all quiet and to myself all morning. Everyone is happy and having a blast being back at school, so whooo hoooo! Have a super weekend everyone! As always, thanks for stopping by!
