But I Need It....

Good morning! Today's card was made for Card Positioning Systems (CPS) sketch #75. Again, more great blog candy - how can a person resist making fun cards with the chance of winning some love!

So, I pulled out my one Hanna stamp and I do adore her. She is obviously my favorite. I did a lot of paper piecing, more than I had intended. The cutting of all the bags was a bit painstaking, but still all worth it in the end.

The entire time I was doing this card, I was thinking of my friend Emily from Em's Closet. Papertrey ink's newest release included some very pretty Dark Chocolate ribbon. Early on, Em made the connection between the Dark Chocolate Polka Dot Ribbon and the dress that Julia Roberts wore to the Polo Match in Pretty Woman, SO... those were the thoughts running through my head while I was making this card and why I chose the coloring and paper that I did. If it all doesn't make sense just keep on trucking... you know how it is :)

So back to the card. The base is PTI Dark Chocolate cardstock, paired with Lavender Moon and some Vanilla Cream. I stamped polka dots with Palette Burnt Umber ( the new PTI Dark Chocolate) using Polka Dot Basics. I also stamped Polka Dots for Hanna's dress, but I used a stamp from Too Sweet made by CD Stamps. The polka dots were just slightly closer together. I colored my Hanna with my Copics and added just a touch of stickles on the bags and on my sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by and reading my dribble :)
