Like you a Latte (US #94 & Moxie Fab paper piecing challenge)

Hi guys! Here is a fun card I put together this morning for this week's Unscripted Sketches. I've been DYING to get this set ever since I saw this card over at Jenny Peterson's blog. I have a little red headed boy myself. And I gotta say today he is seeming even MORE "red" than usual! lol;) So, I TRIED to case Jenny and make his hair look real by coloring it first with a Stampin' Up! Really Rust pen and then using the Copics over that. I am actually wondering if Jenny used pencils instead. I may ask her, so I can know for sure! I paper pieced his outfit and I'm going to submit this for the paper piecing challenge at Moxie Fab World as well. I aways keep denim print paper around so I can give my characters "jeans." I thought this sketch really called for a patchwork of patterned papers, so that's what I used to create the blocks. The "piggyback" challenge at Unscripted Sketches is to use fabric, so I did die cut a cloud from felt as the base of my accent.  A bit of embellishing and it was good to go! Thanks for stopping by! I would love to have you follow or comment if you can! Have a great day! :)
