Raise the Bar's new sketch

Hello again everyone!
{For this week's FFC Friday Spy Day, please scroll down to the earlier post - thank you!}
This week at Raise The Bar, we have a sponsor AND a sketch by the wonderful
*Melyssa Connolly of Whimsie Doodles*

Here is the sketch:
For my card I used the adorable Lollipop Girl:

Late one evening I had an idea to use twine to mimic those old fashioned lollipops.
It was so simple to do! Just put down a nice, thin layer of craft glue, then using a tool,
twirl the twine from inside the circle on out. 
It was actually quite therapeutic, I'll be finding more images to use my twine on. ;)

Here are some challenges I'm joining in on :
Paper Pretties: ribbon or twine
Truly Scrumptious: Love and hearts

Come on over and join in on the sketchy fun!
You can see the beautiful (and I'm not kidding) samples 
You have one week to participate for your chance to win a spot as a Guest Bar-Tender!
Have a beautiful day everyone!
