A Girly card!
Have made quite a few 'cute' cards lately so felt I needed to make a 'grown-up' card for a change.
I always feel that my 'girlfriends' are more girly than 'cute' cards and this one is for a friends birthday this weekend. I love this stamp, (Hobby Arts - Lady of Fashion) but to get her dress really 'black' I always end up with her looking as if she has stubble on her chin! So I end up paper piecing her dress and hat after stamping really lightly.
The papers are from old and new Papermania packs and I have used textured handmade paper for her dress. I added black ribbon round the neck and on her hat, finished off with black pearls and of course a feather - well she is a fashionable lady!
I made the card and then looked to see if there were any challenges she would fit - guess what - there were quite a few!
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Totally Gorjuss - Black and...
Totally Papercrafts - Paper piecing
Do You Stack Up - Anything goes
Sweet Stamping - Oh so Girly
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes with the option of old - stamp and paper

Well thats it for now and if you like what you see, please pop back
