Warm Apple Pie

I've wanted to play along with the Tuesday Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. So when I colored up Warm Apple Pie from Belles N' Whistles, I thought this sketch would be perfect for this sweet little baker! I just adore the new Belles N' Whistles release illustrated by Elisabeth Bell. They're just so much fun! Here's the sketch for this week:

And this is my take on it:

My daughter, Tiffany, loves to make apple pie. All of my girls love to cook and bake and they got that from their father, not me! I'll do all the clean up you can throw at me, but to do the cooking, well, it's not my talent.

This little baker is colored with Prismacolor pencils and OMS and I highlighted her dress with Stickles and her ribbon and shoes with Glossy Accents. I love this gorgeous paper from My Mind's Eye and thought the colors were perfect for her. Don't you love the little toile on her dress? I added a few pearls in the corners and thought they were perfect for her.

And how can you resist this sweet little face? Elisabeth illustrates the sweetest little babies! Just adore all of her work! Thanks, Elisabeth, for giving us images that give us so much joy. It's such a pleasure to work this these cuties!

Make sure to stop over at the store blog and see what's going on over there. It changes from day to day so you never know what you might see. Don't miss a thing!

Card Ingredients:

Warm Apple Pie by Belles N' Whistles, Prismacolor Pencils, OMS, Stickles, Glossy Accents, My Mind's Eye paper, ribbon, hatpin
