LNS 159 - Girly Girl

Good morning, Friends! I hope you are having a great start to a great weekend! It is supposed to start raining around here starting tomorrow but I am o.k. with that because we really need the moisture! We really haven't gotten any snow around here to speak of so the rain would be nice. Nick has soccer practice and there are some really great basketball games on, too! 

Today's card is one that just sort of popped into my head and as I experimented, this is what emerged! I am excited about it, too!! I am sure that someone else has thought of this but I hadn't seen it anywhere else and that is why I am so excited about how it all came out! The Late Night Stampers group's challenge is to make a Girly-Girl card. As I was browsing through my most recent magazine, I came across a cute card that had a clothesline and cute little clothes hanging from it. And then it hit me... what about the owl punch? So I pulled it out and gave it a try. Our little clothespins are just a tad too big for this so I left it off. Here's what I did: I punched a piece of Blushing Bride with the owl punch and then drew little lines with my white gel pen to give it some definition that it was a dress. Then I took some of the new Blushing Bride pleated satin ribbon and attached it to the bottom of the "dress" on the back using sticky strip. My card base is Whisper White with a piece of Blushing Bride. Then I took another piece of Whisper White and stamped the greeting from Teeny Tiny Wishes in Basic Grey and used the ticket corner punch on the corners. This is popped up on the card and the "dress" has two dimensionals on it to pop it up on the card. I added a punched heart from the owl punch in Poppy Parade. And then I put a little rhinestone on it. I also added rhinestones in the corners of the Blushing Bride piece. I just think it turned out so cute! Now if I just knew of someone having a little girl... All my friends having babies are having boys! Anyway, it was fun! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
