Stella Says Sketch

Good morning! It's Stella Says Sketch Sunday at Catch the Bug and I have a card to share using the July sketch. It's a great sketch and you have all month to play along so I hope you'll give it a try!

I went with one of my favorite "Margaret" images...I just love how she oozes sass! And her style too.... I've colored her with pencils; how do you like her yellow polka dotted swim skirt? She's ready for the beach with zinc oxide on her nose and sunscreen in her bag! Patterned papers are from Echo Park and the stitched die cuts are from Lil' Inker Designs.

***Funny story about the die cuts.... The first floor of my house is being remodeled, so that means every room except the kitchen (already done) and bathroom are basically not livable. My studio on the second floor is being used for storage right now and I couldn't find my sun die amongst the mess! I do have a sun punch, but I wanted the "stitched" look and was accepting no substitutes! I frantically searched here and there...multiple times...and finally found a baggie of extra die cuts. Score! There was a sun inside, not the size I wanted though, so I layered it on a circle...not exactly the look I was going for, but it was a "make it work" moment!

Here's the sketch:
