The Stamping Boutique is sponsoring Just Inspirational Challenges

Hi everyone it's Friday and the end of my weeks leave. I just thought I would let you know that  The Stamping Boutique is sponsoring the challenge at Just Inspirational Challenges - which is.......

a photo - my inspiration was the manequin so I used this digi

Seamstress Cynthia.

Here is my card............

She has been coloured with Promarkers and Sakura Stardust gel pens. I did some real sewing around teh edges using embroidery silks in pink and cream. I have distressed the edges and used Spun Sugar distress ink.

The wings are glittered and I have punched out some little butterflies from the pink DP - this is from a First Edition pad called Spring Feast. I have used the Spellbinders dies Fleur De Lis Accents for the border and Fleur De Lis Squares for the sentiment.

The flower border is from the same DP using an EK Success punch called Garden Flower Chain. I have also used American seam binding to make the ribbon flower with a pink button from my stash. The butterfly, sentiment and background punch of a manequin are from a free stamp set from one of the crafting magazines.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:-

Just Inspirational Challenges - Photo inspiration,

Top Tip Tuesday - Stitches real or faux,

Charisma Challenge - Ribbon,

Crafty Purple Frog Challenge - Pink and Girly,

Moving Along With the Times - Cute as a button,

I Love Promarkers - Ribbons and bows (the ribbon flower is made of bow shapes - if this is OK?),

The Sisterhood of Crafters - Digi, and,

Craft Room Challenges - Shabby/vintage.

I would love to know what you think, your comments really make my day.
