Sew Lovely

Hello Friends,
I've missed my paper crafting & my blogging friends. It's been quite sometime now since I made any projects & uploaded them here. Well I made a quick B'day Card for a special Girl I know. I don't wanna disclose her name here cuz I know she keeps lurking around in here. Well I made it in just a couple of minutes. It's one of those projects which U have to complete in a little bit of time with limited supplies. Well a (non-crafter)Friend & her baby were over & when she entered my craft room she was in awe. She loved my projects & challenged me to work with just limited supplies that she picked out for me to make a card with. She left the decision on me to choose the colors. So I chose to work with the colors of The Play Date Cafe Challenge Colors which are Grey, Yellow & Pink. I got the idea about half background stamping from her baby's cute Tee that she was wearing. 

I will be entering this card in a challenge here & here

The products used here:

Hero Arts Stamp - Old Letter Writing Block for the background script.
Lawn Fawn Stamp (Sew Lovely) for the Dress Form & Sentiment.

Inks -  Distress Ink - Mustard Seeds
Stazon - Jet Black Ink
Ceramic Flower - is from my stash.
Card Stock - Fabriano (Elle Erre)
Water Color Paper for the stamped image.
I stamped the image directly on the white card stock with my black ink.
I cut the dress form twice and pop-dotted it with my foam dots for the extra dimension.
I stamped the sentiment very lightly with the Mustard Yellow Ink. Then penned dots over it with my Signo Black Gel Pen & Then Stamped once again with Black ink slightly off , (for the shadowed effect)

Hope she likes it......

So glad you joined us in the Cafe and are back to crafting! I always love taking a little time off because I feel creatively refreshed when I come back... everything seems new again. Your card is so sweet - I love the floral accent. HUGS.
