Love You Bunches - Crafty Creations Challenge

Hi ya everyone!  I'm so excited to share this card with you today!  I worked really hard and it took a bit of time - but I was thrilled with the results.  This week at Crafty Creations the challenge is to use three words on your card - "love you bunches" is what I chose.  This is a larger card 6x6 so I could add all the elements.  I found this ever so adorable stamp at Mo Manning's store (Digital Pencil Too) - and it's called Bunches.  I colored her with my Copics and added a few white highlights here and there.
Next, I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday (who's sponsored by Tickled Pink) for the layout.  I cut all my papers from a Basic Grey stack and inked the edge of everything in my Walnut Stain Tim Holtz ink.  Then I sowed each one to a background piece.  I then stacked the sheets according to the sketch.  I also computer generated my sentiment.
Lastly, I added some green lace and some adorable little pearls.  Tied some pink string that I also inked with Walnut Stain through some matching green buttons (This will allow me to enter the Mo Manning Challenge - Buttons, bows and lace) and added some Stardust Stickles to a few individual spots.
