Card Recycle

Although I didn't hate the original card, I just wanted to bling it out more. I used almost all of the previous supplies and added a few more. I know better than to try and do anything without lots of bling and pop dots! The extra matting really add to the finished card.

Hip to be square

The Dare to be Sassy Thursday (DTBST) challenge this week at Sassy Studio Designs is to make a square card. This is certainly a change for me because my cards are usually 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. This card is 6 x 6. The image was this week's free on Paper Craft Planet. The image was colored w/Copics and the leaves were highlighted with Stickles. The die cut leaves were cut with the cricut and distressed w/sandpaper. The edges of the image were distressed w/Tim Holtz vintage photo ink. I layered ribbon and lace to match her sweater and jacket and added skittles as the final touch.

Sassy Studio Designs Masquerade Ball Hop

The image is from Sassy Studio Designs Masquerade Ball Hop and colored with Copics and made dimensional with foam tape. The bats are also from SSD. The background paper is from a DCWV Fall Stack. The lace is Wrights hem lace found in most fabric stores, bought on clearance for 25 cents a pack. I used Nestabilities, homemade Glimmermist, CTMH ink, feathers, and of course my favorites which include 3Birds flowers, bling and glitter clue. The picture is not doing the card any justice because in real life it is BEAUTIFUL! Her mask is accented with glass accents.
