Dare to Be Sassy Thursday 8/23/2012

It's time for another Dare To Be Sassy Thursday at Sassy Studio Designs. Today's challenge is "Finish the inside." I don't know about you but I usually leave the insides of my cards blank. Because I sell most of my cards, I'd burn up way too many brain cells trying to figure out what to say. It's one of the great things about being on this wonderful design team. We are always challenged to "step outside the box" and flex our creative muscles.

I started out with Phillipines Honey from SSD most recent release. I colored here with Copics and paper-pieced her here dress and fan. I used the Close To My Heart Art Philosophy cartridge along with my Cricut to cut and stamp the outside sentiment. The background paper is also CTMH. I used both Cheery Lynn Designs and Spellbinder Nestabilities die-cuts to cut addition shapes. I absolutely love organza ribbon and used it to tie a bow and finally added bling, foam tape, a Martha Stewart branch punch, Fiskars edge punch and wooden stamp to finish off the design.

Be sure to stop by SSD blog to enter your design and to see what the other designers have created!
