After I am done with this post I am headed outside to catch up with the yard work and enjoy the sun. It has been such a glorious summer here so I want to take advantage of it whenever I can and I know winter will be here before we know it. The days are already noticeably shorter and the fireweed is almost done blooming which is a sign that summer is almost over and winter is fast approaching.
Any way back to the reason of this post which is I have a card to share:
The Shabby Tea Room , Material Girl for the colors (green and blue) and then they wanted us to use material ( I used canvas for the material) and flowers (flowers are in the pattern paper and I also used teeny green paper flowers)
Isn't this a gorgeous photo! As I said before I used the colors green and blue and I also used the dress form as my focal image.
For my cards design I used the sketch from Cardabilities:
You really need to stop by their blog and see all the pretty inspiration from their DT.
I stayed pretty true to the sketch on this one.
Next I die cut the stand out of pattern paper, inked the edges with distress ink and pieced it together with the dress form and added it to the light green pattern paper with the stitched floral pattern which I thought fit the theme of my card very well. I distressed all the edges of my layers with my distress tool and inked the edges with Walnut Stain distress ink.
I love the fact that this card is flat even though it has lots of layers making it so much easier to mail.
And since this card has lots of distress going on I thought I would also play over at Lawnscaping.
Thanks so much for dropping by and have a great day everyone!
