Best Wishes

Here's my card for the Waltzing Mouse Sketch challenge this week.  I've kept the card pretty simple.  The background was made with the Dainty Doilies 2 set stamped with a light lilac ink and the dress (from You're Lovely set) was paper-pieced with patterned paper (Pink Paislee Nantucket).  A little shading was added with Copic Marker YG91 and the Colourless Blender.  The sentiment is from Big Day Additions set.  My card follows this sketch:
Here are some close ups:
I folded the lace trim into a bow and added a twine and cabachon with Glossy Accents

The dress was cut out leaving a slight border and adhered to card with pop dots
