Joanna Sheen Card Swap - September 2010


The topic over at the Joanna Sheen Card Swap this month is "DIVA - shop 'til you drop - girly stuff - shopping - shoes - hats - bags etc".  Yikes!!!  For those that know me I don't do bags, shoes, buying clothes unless I am really really desperately in need of something and I still hate shopping for them so this topic was certainly a challenge for me.  I have used a The Creative Cottage digital download of backing papers, shoes, boots and handbags for the card and took it into My Craft Studio to align the pieces neatly for the front of the card and printed out some extra handbags to decoupage.  For the insert I made the topper less opacity and then inserted some free My Craft Studio shaped nesties to put the text onto.  The card is finished off with some fibres, pink handbag charm with ribbon tied through, a ticket sentiment and two of matching flowers, the top layer being scrunched up and then inked.

This card fits the following challenges:

Digi Doodle - Write me a message
Sew Many Cards - Grandparents day, Thank you or love
Totally Papercrafts - Charming
Gingerloft Challenge - Anything goes - here sees the start of another new challenge blog.  I wish you a lot of success and will try and take part as often as I can
