This card was made using the April Kit of the Month, Fresh Beginnings. Gorgeous kit. So many stamps! I also used Basic Grey Bittersweet paper, Prima Flowers, and my Nesties. I used PTI and SU ribbon, an SU Clear button, and SU Linen Thread.
This card uses the March Kit of the Month, Simple Life. I stamped the journaling block (not just for scrapbooking!), cut it out, and punched the edge using an EK Success edger punch. I saw the "But wait, there's more" along the bottom of the DP and thought it might be kind of cute along the bottom ;>. I stamped one of Unity's beautiful quotes on the inside. Sorry, could not get a decent picture of the inside, but you get the idea. I used my Cutter Bee Bug to add the perforated lines to mimic the lines in the paper. By the way, how awesome is the Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday line! The buttons I love! I put little snips of ribbon over the buttons and tied them to the buttons using linen thread. I got the idea from Michelle Wooderson. She always has awesome ideas!

I started with an SU Sahara Sand base. I stamped the little curly flourish along the edge. I added the designer paper from, I think, Daisy D's. The Kraft layer was stamped with the Distressed Dots. The Dress Form is mounted on Papertrey Ink Spring Rain CS. The "Hello" is stamped on Papertrey Ink Sweet Blush. The Twill Ribbon is also sponged with PTI Sweet Blush. All of the edges of the cardstock were distressed with the Tim Holtz Paper Distresser and sponged with SU Creamy Caramel Ink to age it. The twill was also sponged with Creamy Caramel. I dug and found some SU buttons to coordinate with the card. They have SU Linen Thread through them, and they're adhered with glue dots.
The GORGEOUS Dress Form was stamped in SU Close to Cocoa and colored with Prismacolor Pencils. After shading the whole thing I went over the lines and the basewith Prismacolor's Gold Metallic pencil. It was cut out in two pieces and mounted on the cardstock. The body of the form was popped up on dimensionals. I found this tiny rhinestone flower by Heidi Swapp for the belt. I went over the pearl necklace with my white pen.
Whew, that was a lot! I hope you enjoy it!

Back to the card! This was the first set I purchased from Papertrey Ink. I also picked up the cardstock sampler. Wow! I'm glad I did! It's so heavy duty. Very impressed! I picked up a couple of ink cubes too, some ribbon, and some vintage buttons. All very yummy!
The card base is PTI Dark Chocolate. The rest of the CS is SU Confetti White. I sponged it for the scalloped oval and the quilt strip with PTI Melon Berry ink. The image is 3 separate images. The greeting, the thread and the needle are all separate.
Thanks for stopping by!

Me, Deb V, Kathy
For our challenges someone will grab some inexpensive stamps, like Snag 'em Stamps by Imaginisce, and some coordinating paper for each of us. We take it home and see what we come up with. We make enough for everyone and swap at our next get together. Below is my card from our latest challenge.

I'm posting this (gorgeous) image that I framed for a friend's birthday quite awhile back. I believe I colored it with ink on the lid of the stamp pad and an aquapainter. I stamped the saying on a piece of torn cork paper my sister gave to me. I wish the colors showed up better. Anyway, thanks for looking, and I hope to be back with more this weekend!
ETA: I thought I should tell you that this was made for my great friend Bevvie! Her blog is here! She is one of the funniest people I know!
