ODBD Sketch Challenge and Grab and Go # 8

ODBD had this sketch challenge happening this week.  I really enjoy doing sketch challenges as it really forces me to think outside my box.  I couldn't just grab this time because I needed an image that would fit the oval shape of the pattern.  I haven't used this cute little girl for a long time though so it still was refreshing to stamp with her. Her dress is paper pieced a technique we used on VSN and I like it and have used that technique but I tend to forget about using it. The background is a tiny little stamp of lilacs and stamped all over in pink and then added a few splashes of the same stamp in green for some contrast.  It ties the paper in with the scalloped oval. What do you think?  Does it look a lot like the sketch?  Two more stamps used from the collection.   (smile)
