Let's Do Lunch

Every week Cindy comes up with wonderful ideas and then puts out a card sketch challenge for the 'My Favorite Things' Forum on SCS. This is sketch MFTSC44.
The stamp set is "Meet me at the cafe", by My Favorite Things.
This is such a terrific layout, I had so much fun making this card.
First I stamped the image on white cardstock, in Black Brilliance Ink then coloured the table, chairs, wine glasses and the arms and legs of the girls.
After deciding on Inque Boutique's pad of Designer 6"x 6" Paper . I stamped out parts of the image to get the girls some designer clothing (great fabric choices don't you agree) .
I cut out the dress, boots, skirt and top from several different sheets . A little fiddly but certainly not hard to do and i think it was worth it. After cutting out I simply glued the clothing on the main stamped image. I stamped the sentiment in black Brilliance , then cut all the ovals for the sentiment with the nestabilities.Next step was to layer everything together and presto!! I think this is really sweet card.
Other Embellishments I used include Prima flowers, paper lace, pink pearls, a flower brad and the cardstock is all from Stampin Up.
I just love these stamps. I can't wait for my new order to arrive.
Until next time
Inking of you all
