Happy Kids

Good morning everyone! Peachy Keen's challenge is a sketch this week and it's so cute I just had to play along! And it gives me an excuse to play with my July SOTM kit. Here is the sketch:
I flipped the sketch and this is the card that I came up with. The boy and girl were stamped and colored with copics. I am somewhat of a novice when it comes to Copics, so I was pretty happy with the end result. I tried a technique that was really cool. On the girls dress, after I was done coloring it in, I used my colorless blender to do the poka dots on her dress my just dotting it all over. I think it turned out really neat! I used my sewing machine and sewed around the square mat in white. Then I took chalk and colored over the stitching lines in red to get that color. The decorative circle mat was cut from Elegant Edges and the sentiment banner was paper pieced. I stamped the sentiment which is from My Craft Spot's new Tiny Tags 2 set. To finish I added a button with twine and some brads. I hope you all like my card and thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
