A sketch by Amy Rysavy - AMYRS18

I love to look at Amy Rysavy's blog, Prairie Paper & Ink. She has awesome cards and sketches. ( the way she can color an image is amazing! ) I've always been too shy to make a card and post the link on her blog, because I don't feel like my stuff is up to par with all the talented people whose blogs I look at. But this week, I decided to give it a whirl.

I used one of my Bella images and some Stampin' Up patterned-paper and cardstock. I changed up the sketch a little bit for my card, because after I started stringing the beads on the wire and the kiddo started helping I had beads going every which way but on the wire! And I was making six of these cards, so it started to become a bit time consuming. In addition to the beads I did some paper piecing w/the apron. And added Stickles to the cake and a little diamond glaze to the boots to make them patent leather looking...didn't turn out quite as I had planned but I liked the end result.
