I am ready for the weekend and more crafting!
As you can probably tell from my previous posts, I have
become completely enamored with the Sassy Studio Design stamps.
They are just so adorable, and well. . .SASSY!
I had a great idea to make a wedding shower card for an upcoming
wedding shower I am going to be attending.
But after I started I making the card, I changed my mind from
making a nice demure wedding shower card to a nice demure birthday card.
But every time I came up with an idea for the card, I kept changing my mind.
I ended up making a birthday card for my soon to be 15 year old daughter.
I originally wanted to use pink & white, but I ended up with bright pink & black.
I decided I wanted to use the Boom Box Sassy, because my daughter loves music. She's a dancer and is always listening to music!
I wanted to something different than I usually do,
and I think I accomplished that.
For the inside I used the sketch from over at the Sweet Stop Challenge Blog.
I took my black ink pad and roughly inked around the edges.
I wanted to make it look a little Urbany (is that even a word?!)
I used a stencil to do the writing because my writing is not that great.
I cut out music notes out of black glitter paper (was there any doubt?)
The "15" is cut out of DCWV pink glitter paper using my Tim Holtz numbers.
I added a little bling on the BOOM BOOM BOOM page. Naturally.
I wasn't sure how I was going to color the pants until I saw Sassy Studio's
Dare To Be Sassy Thursday challenge - Use Kraft paper somewhere.
Perfect! That was exactly what I needed for the pants!
I want to enter this into the following challenges:
