My Favorite Things...WSC Challenge # 10...A Best Friend...!

Just a quick post this morning to share the card I made for the My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club Sketch # 10 challenge! I just got this sweet A La Mode stamp called Wishing You Luck! I knew that I just had to have her as I am of Irish descent. My Dad is from Newry, Co. Down N. Ireland. I colored the sweet A La mode cailin (colleen) up with my Copics and gave her dark hair just like me. I am told that I look Irish quite often...mostly by those folks who know what an Irish cailin looks like,smile! I also thought I would add some cotton lace trim as I thought it gave the feel of a warm and cozy Erin cable knit sweater! 

I stamped one of the sentiments from the Wishing You Luck set on watercolour paper in Sepia ink an inked with Old Paper Distress ink. 
Here is the inside...Very simple. I stamped the A La Mode girl again in Sepia ink and I cut watercolour paper with MFT Die-namics Polka Dot Greetings Stamp and Die set and stamped one of the sentiments for this set. 

well, thanks so much for popping by today to have a wee peek at my card for the MFTWSC10 challenge!

Hope you have a stampin' great day!

I love seeing how you interpret these sketches & your MFT images. This one just delights & gives me a kind of thrill - maybe it's because I love green. The way you've threaded that ribbon through the lace is brilliant & the lace itself makes me think of one of those lacey tops that ladies used to wear. I love these image insides that you do too.
