You can't take the fussy out of me!


In complete contrast to yesterdays Clean(ish) and Simple(ish) card, I just have to post something a bit more... erm... busy... just to redress the balance!

I've made this card for one of the girls at work... she has a thing about shoes, and always wears fabby clothes (but then she has the advantage of being much younger than me, has no kids to drain her bank balance (or to have left their marks on her figure) and living at home...).  Anyway, she was delighted with her Christmas card and I knew just the image to use for her Birthday card :-)

 I went all monochrome for this one, and used some download papers from Michele R Designs.  I've not used many printable papers before but saw these, and loved them!  I added some distress inks to the outside of each paper, and added lace, ribbon, cheesecloth and a charm. I decided to keep this card monochrome - although it all looks a bit brighter in the photos than in real life!!

The Cinderella image is from Kraftin Kimmie, but I think she may have been discontinued :(  Anyway, I've been practicing my colouring of fabric on her skirts... I'm getting there with it I think!  I mounted her on the right of the card... well she is running away!  I added gems to her earrings and necklace, and glitter to her skirt... and popped her on the edge of a die cut which has also been dry embossed, stamped and dotted with some embossing powders (I think it was the pink and gold glitter one, and the white and gold glitter one... I got a bit carried away!!)


Please may I enter these challenges

Anyway, thanks for stopping by
