This morning I just finished this card for the CA&F Monday Mania - Laces Up challenge:
The challenge rules were "Create a card using at least 1 style of Lace and at least 1 style Ribbon. More than one style of lace and/or ribbon is acceptable. Colors are the creators choice and of course we all know the rules on which TGF stamps or digis to use!"
I cut this shape card (called "Doily") using the Wild Card cartridge from Cricut. I just loved the shape and had a picture in my mind of the end result. I chose the black and green colors because I hadn't used them in a while. Used K&Company Wild Saffron adhesive paper ribbon for the "lace" accent. I colored the strips to match the color of the card. I chose Cheeky Cherry Glamour as the starlett in this card. She just pulled it all together for me and was exactly what I envisioned. Colored her eyes green as seen in a card by Awilda Ramirez (check out her card at http://cardfactory-awilda.blogspot.com/) It makes her eyes stand out. I added a little bit of lace to her garter and some color to her ears (going for stud earrings). I also tried to make her hair look feathered by drawing in the lines using a black Memento pen. Some blush and eyeshadow and a bling for her mirror she looks like she's ready for anything. Well off to work I go, hope you have a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping to look. :)
