Good morning-
We have a fun challenge for you over at Sentimental Sundays this week.
This week we want to see:
3 Embellishments That Start w/ "B"

We are being sponsored by ADFD and I chose to play with Book Time.
I read to my boys all the time and made an instant connection, the moment I saw the image.
The 3 B's I am using on my card today are: banners, button and burlap twine.

I colored the image with my Copic markers and paper pieced the book and the dress, using Teresa Collins: Stationery Noted paper. When the glue finished drying, I place the image inside my embossing folder (checkerboard) and ran it through my Grand Calibur.  I love the way it came out...I had never tried this before and  had decided on doing this because I didn't like how the paper piecing looked around the girls head.  I also ran out of ink and couldn't print another image, so I said let's try something new.
The embossing, just made the entire piece look as one.
Here is a more detailed shot of the image and the sentiment.
So join us this week and please, don't forget your sentiments!!!!

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
ADFD #65
