You're a Blessing

Good morning! Thought I would stop by with another card I made for the Throwback Thursday Challenge at Wplus9! Once again, since I only recently discovered Wplus9, I didn't have a lot of older stuff except sentiments, so I combined one of those with a newer set again for my card. I was a little looser on my interpretation of the inspiration cards by Maureen Merritt on this card - going for the main center panel as if following a sketch, and adding sequins as she did on her last card: 

Also linking this up with the current Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Anything Goes:

The new set I used is called Pick of the Litter. I just KNEW this sweet image would be fun to color with Copics, and I certainly wasn't disappointed! Once it was colored in, I stamped my sentiment by masking parts of a couple different sentiments from Hand Lettered Thanks, and die cut the front panel with an Avery Elle die. Next, I wrapped a good bunch of silver thread around and tied a fluffy thread bow. Mounted with foam adhesive on my pattern paper from American Crafts, then added a generous sprinkling of sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and a few enamel dots. 

Thanks for dropping by today! Hope you are having a wonderful day!!!
