The beat of my heart!

Most days when I sit down to create a card I have a recipient and/or an occasion in mind and use that as my starting point.  But this time was different.  I started with an image, this week's Sweet Stop Sketch and zero inspiration.  That was until a tiny little bit of inspiration climbed into my lap and wanted to "help". As soon as my daughter Brooke saw the image I had chosen, she natural assumed I was making this card for her.  
So... this is for my darling Brookie!! 

The image that I've used is from SCACD - Day Dreaming Peeker, which I won recently during a blog hop.  (Yay Me!!)  Deciding to use only various shades of pink, I chose DP from My Minds Eye (Hazel) and machine stitched all the paper panels.  The felt roses were created using a die from My Favorites Things (mini rolled roses).  However, the felt I used was originally white that I colored with my Copics (R02 & RV34) to match.  A few of the pearls from the flourish (that were being hidden by the image) were cut and then added to the center of the roses.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink  - Mixed Messages, which I thought was absolutely PERFECT for my little love!!  For some girly girl sparkle, my little mixture of Shimmerz and Stickles was added to her shoes and leotard.  And last but not least, my favorite little detail...the tiny bit of pink tulle on her tutu.  

And don't forget...the other Sugar Babies have created beautiful sketch 
samples to inspire you with.  I hope you will stop by and check them out.
We also have a new Sugar Baby...the fabulous Kim O'Connell
so please stop by and give her a welcome.

I like the way that pearl swirl mimics the shape of the crochet, especially with the top little tail cluster. The subtle dotty effect in your pale pink "Baroque" swirls patterned paper are picked up beautifully by the little flecks of deep colour in the felt roses plus the deep pink paper - again echoing the polka dots - as well as those pearls. Goodness the more I tried to describe the more I saw. Love the tulle too & the lovely shading on her hair & dress.
