BIC8 Corner Silhouette


Good Morning
everyone!!!

You've guess it...I'm already running around!!!

Miriam has Preschool today instead of Monday....My two oldest are on *Spring Break*. They are having their friends over and we are getting ready to hit the Mall...I love a "Girl's Day" out - shopping around and trying new things on.....


Talking about fashion isn't this one *hot* dress Beate has picked for today's "Be Inspired" Challenge #8 ??? I wouldn't mind having this dress in my closet!!! It's fun and totally stylin'....


It wasn't hard to get inspired at all. I have use So Saffron, Bashful Blue and Pumpkin Pie CS for this card plus Basic Black and Whisper White.


I love the *Blocking* Challenge #29 Sharon aka "notimetostamp" has going on and that's when I decided to use this layout for today's Challenge.


Remember I was telling you about my trip to the LSS.......I've also picked up this fabulous "Corner Silhouette" Stamp from *Hero Arts* - which came in pretty handy to create this card!!! I have used Versamark on it and then embossed it with Black EP to make it stand out more.....


The little butterflies are from the "Pretty Petals" BG Stamp from SU. I stamped them with a Basic Black Stampin' Spot. Then I've cut them out and raised them with Stampin Dimensionals.
I know their are no butterflies on the dress, but the dress *screams* Spring and I just had to add them plus I think they look totally cute - LOL!!!


The sentiment is from the SU "Cherished Memories" Rub Ons. I've used the oval "Styled Silver" Label Holder and centered it on top of the sentiment. To finish the card off I have punched out three white 1/4" circles and added the black "gemstones" from *Hero Arts*!!!


Hope you like it and we have inspired you to play along.....don't forget to check everyone else out from the Inspiration Team...you can find all the talented ladies on the right hand side of my blog!!!


Have a great day!!! ~TFL~
