Have a Swinging Good Day!

Today Clear & Simple Stamps is sponsoring the Off the Wall Craftiness challenge.  I had never heard of this challenge before, but after perusing her blog, I'm definitely going to have to check it out.

The storyboard we received to work with was very interesting, it took me awhile to think about what I may create with this color combination.  Being that it's a coral pink, I initially wanted to do flowers, but then turned towards a feminine set instead.


I paper pieced her shirt by stamping my image on whit cardstock and then stamping over it with the Art Deco background set and then cut it out and pieced it on my original stamped image.  I wanted to add some flowers of course and so I cut out about 15 flower die cuts with one of my cuttle bug dies, I crumpled them and distressed them.  I added a button in the middle of it and stamped my sentiment in A Blanc Check ink with paper piercing below it.

Hope you will join us over at Off the Wall Craftiness for your chance to win a $25 gift certificate from Clear & Simple Stamps.

Cardstock:  A Blanc Check, Enchanted Evening, Berry Sorbet

Fab use of the "story board". The paper you created works wonderfully pieced as her shirt!

Very fun golfing card. I've never seen that image before. Love the way you stamped and paper pieced her shirt, and the flower is the perfect accent.
