March PTI Bloghop

Hi everyone. Is it really time for another PTI blog hop? I need to watch the days more closely because they are just slipping by me.

This month's challenge is to use embroidery floss in a creative way. I chose to use it as raindrops as the background of my card. Spring reminds me of lots of rain and tulips and so my card reflects this beautiful season.

You are a Treasure

Hi!! I was going through some of my pictures of projects I made and I stumbled upon this card that I realized I haven't posted yet. It isn't anything too spectacular but I loved how it turned out. Love the colors, the dress form with the ribbon for the skirt, everything.

The dress form is a die cut by Papertrey Ink and I cut out three dress forms and then adhered them all together to make it like thin chipboard (wanted something a little more stable). I covered the top of the dress form with patterned paper and covered the bottom with ribbon and then made a belt out of gems. So much fun to make.
