Classy Lady

I'm way behind this week, usually I can keep up with my crafting but my Mojo is in slow drive. So I had a look at some of my favourite challenge blog sites for inspiration and two hours later I designed this card to accompany my altered chocolate box for my friend and it covers quite a few challenges. I love this stamp and wanted to do something different with her, so I paper pieced the hat and coat using different materials.
The Hat and the lapels were stamped onto white card and then I used pro markers to colour them in, I embossed them using my cuttlebug folder swissdots. The actual coat is stamped onto wood free handmade paper it has a boucle effect which I am quite pleased with. I coloured the band on the hat with black glitter pen and popped on a small rose for effect.

Here are the challenges she is going into.

1. The Crafty Pad Challenge: I followed the sketch which was designed by Jess
2. Pile it on Challenge: 3 flowers required this week along with your project being entered into at least one more challenge.
3. Whimsy Stamps Challenge: This week the theme is Friendship.
4. Die Cut Dreams Challenge: This week theme is Fashion Frenzy
5. A spoon Full of Sugar Challenge: This week it is Floral Fantasy.

Thank you so much for visiting, I do hope you will pop in and see me again.
