A Girlie Card

Welcome to my blog.  Today's card is going to be entered into three different challenges.  The first challenge, QKR Stampede, is Soft Pastels. The second challenge, Love to Create, is an Anything Goes challenge with a sentiment. The third challenge, Stamping for the Weekend, is for Something Girlie.  I love the shabby chic look even though I am not that good at creating it.  So, for this card, I just started adding elements without really spending too much time arguing with myself over them.  This is how it turned out....

To make this card, I started with a Whisper White (SU) card base A2 size.  I trimmed down a piece of pink card stock from Recollections to 4"x5.25".  I adhered that to the card base.  I found two pieces of DP from Kand Co. that I liked and cut them down to 2" wide.  For the lighter pink, I shortened it to 5" and the darker pink to 4.5".  I notched the ends of each one for a banner effect. I then inked them both with DI Vintage Photo and adhered them to the card.  I took a piece of white lace and using glue dots, I scrunched it up across the card.  To hide the raw edge of the lace I used a punched strip of green card stock from Recollections. I used pop dots on the top edge of the strip to even out both sides.  I punched a piece of White (GP) card stock into an oval and using pop dots added this sweet little vintage girl that I received in a swap a couple years ago.  I then used pop dots to adhere the whole thing to the card.  In the upper right hand corner I added a paper heart inked with DI Vintage Photo and three paper flowers from Recollections.  The sentiment is from TCP's Faith Greetings stamps set.  It is stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa and inked with DI Vintage Photo.  I added the sentiment on an angle with pop dots.

I like the way this card turned out.  Kinda vintage, kinda shabby but still pretty clean.  I hope you like it.

Thanks for stopping by.  Keep tuned in for some more creations and my first post for Digi Darla.  God bless you.
