Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 206-Be-YOU-Tiful

It’s time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! I used another one of the new rag doll stamp set from Clear and Simple Stamps for this week’s sketch.

Be-YOU-Tiful-designed by Lori Tecler-Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Clear and Simple Stamps
I die cut the Rag Doll Emma: Girl image from white cardstock and stamped the matching image on the die cut piece, then colored it with Copic markers. She’s adhered to a round panel using foam tape.  I stamped the set's "be-you-tiful" sentiment next to her in black ink.

I paired the image with a piece of colorful polka dotted patterned paper.  To break up the pattern a bit, I adhered a piece of pink cardstock with a debossed dot pattern to the patterned paper, then added the image panel on top.  I die cut a Favor Flag strip from golden yellow cardstock and adhered it to the top of the dotted paper panel.  It's topped with a die cut pink heart with a sweet pink baker's twine bow.

To play along, just create a card based on the sketch and link it up on Karen’s blog. For lots of inspiration be sure to check out what the other Sweet Sunday Sketch stampers have created for you this week. Here’s where to find them:
