Today I am finally getting to post a card I made for three terrific challenges! Lexi Daly, designer extrodinar! from Papertrey Ink is the hostess for Make It Monday this week. She has challenged us to create a card using Money in her video HERE.
I was excited to see Lexi's video because her cards were so cute! and immediately went to search out on Google what shape I might create for this challenge. I was shocked! at how super easy this dress was to create. (Marybeth and I could go to the prom together with our two cards for this week! giggles. See Marybeth's sweet take on this sketch HERE.)
I started out by making a mask and stenciling some soft and pretty pastel inks over MFT Funky Flowers stencil. Then I placed my small white frame over that portion of the cardbase. Next I cut a larger scallop shape from the same set and added a little hint of ink. Finally I added the Congratulations sentiment which I wanted to look like a belt.... does it look like a belt gone wild? LOL and a tiny little bow at the neckline of my dress.
This card is a graduation card for my granddaughter who will be finishing Homeschool high school any day. : ) And I have just found out that I will be able to give this card to her in person!! because it turns out I'm getting Katie for my Birthday!! : ) she is flying in to celebrate with us and I am so excited I can't wipe the smile off my face!!
I will be entering this card in the City Crafter Challenge. Don't you just LOVE this inspiration photo!!
And CASology has one of my new favorite themes. I really love the stencils I am seeing in Blogland and the pretty touch they add to a card.
Thank you for stopping by friends. It was hard to get to my computer today because it is so BEAUTIFUL outside today!! I hope you are having a wonderful day too!!
