i {heart} sketches 51

Happy Monday and welcome back for another i {heart} sketches challenge!
Here in the upper Midwest, we are bracing for another 'polar vortex'. Some schools have already cancelled for the next couple of days due to the bitterly cold temps! So when I was debating on what to do with this sketch, I guess you could say I was thinking of more spring/summer like temps :)
This week's sketch

Here is my bright, cheery and warm feeling card !

Other Supplies: Darcie Heater Designs Flat Back "tin pin' embellishment, American Crafts ribbon, QuicKutz Nesting Circles die, atyou Spica marker 21 Lipstick, ki Pearls
Sketch: Sketch 51

I paper pieced her shirt and pants. This image is wonderful for doing something like that. So many patterned papers out there that you could use for the design on her shirt. And while digging thru my embellishments, I came across these flat back tin pins that I had won at a craft show awhile back. And the saying fit just so perfectly!
