29 Again

Hi!  Today's card was made using the Silly cue word at CASology, the color challenge at Cupcake Inspirations and as the Paper Piecing challenge at Happy Little Stampers.


I just love the knowing expression on her face!  29?  Yeah, right!  I stamped the "lady" onto X-Press It cardstock as well as some peach-colored patterned paper.  I colored the image with Copics and cut out the dress from the patterned paper.  I die-cut the panel using a Blueprints die, then cut a slightly larger panel using some more of the patterned paper and lastly the scalloped panel using some old Close to Cocoa cardstock.


A simple, but hopefully, fun card!  Thanks for visiting.




Products used:

Stamps:  29 Again? (Art Impressions)
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Cardstock:  X-Press It, Close to Cocoa, Juntos Patterned Paper (SU), White
Accessories:  Copics, Blueprints 20, 24 (MFT), Wink of Stella

Cheers
Karren

Edited to Add:  This card got a shout out at Cupcake Inspirations and CASology.
