MCT Challenge - "Host Emma" - Pinterest Inspired Project

Here is my Challenge entry for the new bi-monthly challenge over on My Creative Time with Emma! 

I have never been on Pinterest, much less really know what it's about, so I thought this Challenge was the perfect time for me to have a look.  After scrolling through for a while, I came across this post on the ravelry website.  The link to my inspiration piece is HERE

When I saw this cute crochet pillow, I knew exactly the card I wanted to make.  Using my Gypsy I created a grid by welding together elongated rectangles from the George and Basic Shapes cartridge.  I made each vertical rectangle 0.3" x 6", and each horizontal rectangle 0.3" x 4".  I then aligned the rectangles as gridlines on the mat grids on the Gypsy to space them 1" apart.

After cutting out my grid using Crab Grass Green Core'dinations cardstock, I then stuck it onto a piece of white cardstock, 4" x 6".  Using my Peachy Keen Assorted Face Stamp Sets (Happy Lashes, Laughy Taffy, Blushing Brides, Cheery-O's, Funshine Faces, Wide-eyed Kids and Boy Mates) I placed different smiling faces in random squares of the grid.  I also used the small flower from the PKS Spring Bouquet Stamp Set in the top left and bottom right corners, and the star from the PKS Decorate Me Christmas Tree set as well.

I cut a label from a My Favourite Things Die on peach-coloured cardstock and stamped a sentiment from the PKS Spring Bouquet Stamp Set - "Thinking of you... makes me smile!" and adhered this to the grid.  I then put a peach-coloured ribbon around one of the horizontal grid lines under the MFT Label.

Using my Copics and my Pebbles Chalks, I coloured in the little faces, and then added some highlights to the star and the grid with some Stickles.  Once it was was dry I adhered the whole 4"x6" piece to a card I had made from Kraft Cardstock, 4.5" x 6.5".  Here is the finished product!  I hope you like it!
