The Corrosive Challenge 145 - Things are looking Grimm

Welcome to another Corrosive Challenge. This fortnight challenge is sponsored by Sassy Studio Designs. Create a project based on a fairy tale, fable, or children's story.

This card is roughly based on Goldilocks. I started with a center step base and used a Martha Stewart corner punch to highlight the corners of the metallicbackground paper. Next I raveled the edges a piece of gingham fabric and sewed in onto the center background paper. I stamped the Close To My Heart chair image onto a paper that was the exact opposite of what I would have normally used but really wanted the chair to stand out. In my mind I was thinking "this chair is just right." The sentiment is CTMH as well. A Nestabilities die really set the sentiment off. Finally I used foam dots, buttons and bling as the finishing touch.

Be sure to stop by the Corrosive Challenge to see what the rest of the DT has created.
