Denim and Lace

It's time for another Anita Be Stampin' challenge.  Yay!! =)  This week we were challenged to create a card inspired by denim and vintage lace using only dark blue, light blue, cream, brown and other neutral(s) of your choice.  I had a ton of fun with this challenge!  I decided to combine it with a couple of others.  First is One Crazy Stamper's sketch of the month:


Second is the Desert Islands Craft Challenge.  It's an itinerary challenge, where you use three or more of the following itinerary items:


Brenda's Itinerary
 
1. Make it square
3. Handmade flower
4. Hand colored image
5. 2 or more patterned papers
6. Pearls
7. Twine
8. No sentiment on the front
9. Distressing
10. Birthday Theme


I used #1, 4, 6 and 8.

Here is my card!


Estella (one of Anita's AWESOME stamps found here) was colored using Copic markers.  The paper behind her are ripped jeans from the Me & My Big Ideas Urban Bling paper pack.  The brown and cream panels were textured using a Cuttlebug folder and my Texture Boutique.  Add some gems, flowers, pearls and lace...and voila!!

I hope you enjoyed!  Thank you for stopping by!
