She's A Lady!






Well here we are again with a new challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenge. This time the challenge is to create a project based on the above Bingo Card. Simply select three words either horizontally, vertically or diagonally to lead you in your card design. For my card, I selected "showing some metal, lace and words." From there I created a card base with taupe card stock. I wrapped layers of lace around the top, bottom and middle. Lavender grosgrain ribbon, winter white seam binding and crochet trim were layered on next. A variety of images were stamped in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink from the CI- 335 plate by Crafty Individuals onto a number of pastel papers. The images were trimmed and arranged over the previously applied layers. Finishing touches include applique trim flowers, Ideology Metal Flowers, Cotton Candy Stickles, Scattered Straw Distress Stickles, and pearls. I hope you will stop over to FSC and see what my talented Design Team sisters have created to inspire you. We are very excited to see your creations, too. Please remember we are a stamping challenge, therefore digis are not permitted. You can find all the details for the challenge at FSC. Thanks for stopping by! Best wishes, Yvonne
