SDC19: Girly Girl


Kim Prince is our hostess over at Stampotique Designer's Challenge today and here is what she wrote - "I am so excited to be offering the challenge this week! It has been a dark and dreary week here in Halifax, with so much rain it's crazy! So, I would like to challenge you all to make something using a girly girl theme! I know your cards will bring some much needed sunshine to us all! This challenge is open to any and all stamps, but if you do have Stampotique stamps, we would love to see you use them! If you would like to be in the draw to win the FABULOUS $30 gift certificate from Stampotique Originals, please upload your card and share with us your creation, and you will be entered in the draw! I can't wait to see all
your creations!"
 
Since our November guest designer is Janet Klein, I chose to use one of her images for my card.  It's one that cracks me up every time I see it.  I tried to match the best I could with my designer paper and chose to also sew to make it even more feminine.  Boy, sewing in circles is so much harder than I imagined it could be.
I decorated the inside of the card simply with a sentiment and a matching strip of patterned paper.  The front was already top heavy with all the layers I added on so I didn't want to add too much more.  This card uses an OLD Mojo Monday sketch from last year.
 
Hope you will join us over at the Stampotique Designer's Challenge with your Girly Girl creation, can't wait to see what you do!  If you need some inspiration make sure you check out the design team creations here.
