The Kraft Journal Challenge #133 & Seize the Birthday "Anything Goes" Birthday

Hello my friends!

I created a card for two challenges, the first being The Kraft Journal.  We were asked to create a project with the "Sew-so simple" theme.  The other challenge is Seize the Birthday.  It's Anything Goes Birthday!

 
My card:




For my card, I began with Crumb Cake card base, and added layers of Little Yellow Bicycle Vintage Summer patterned paper.  Strips of red cardstock were added on both sides for some pop!  Using more Crumb Cake cardstock, I cut out the dress form using Tim Holtz Mini Sewing Room Set.  I adhered a flower using the SU! Itty Bitty Shape Punch, and carefully added a very small pearl in the middle.  Instead of adding lace to the bottom of the dress form, I jazz it up by adding a cute purse using Memory Box Chic Bag!  The sentiment is from SU! Itty Bitty Banners, and was stamped with Real Red ink.       

I'm also linking my card over at Word Art Wednesday.

Thanks for stopping by,

  3. What a seriously smart idea. It's like getting a blank check. The supersized handbag helps with that thought.
    Thank you so much dropping in with your art today. Remember you can post up to five times which increases your opportunity to win. We hope you come back next week.
