Feminine and Fancy at TioT


 Hello and welcome to another challenge at Try it on Tuesday and this time its Feminine and Fancy.

For my piece I was inspired by a recent project in Craft Stamper, which gave me the opportunity to used my new Cabinet Card die.(again).  I cut a long rectangle 15" x 6" from a Kraft type card and  cut 2 apertures for my window.  All stamps used are Crafty Individuals.  I added lace to the top of the parasols.

I also added a lace curtain to the 'interior' of my shop.               

The rest of the DT have some fabulous feminine projects for your inspiration, and we also have a new team member joining us - Valerie, so please pop over here to see their wonderful feminine creations.

I am entering this at :

  Heck of a Challenge - Fashion (yes - underwear is fashionable)
  Happy Campers - Use Lace
  Make it Monday - Anything Goes
  Simon Says Stamp & Show - Inspired by - Craft Stamper mag.

Thats it for now,

Avril xx
