Psalm 37:4

Sunday, July 15, 2012

Hi Friends! I have one last card to share with you before I have to clean up my craft room. I promised my DD that I'd make her some Barbie clothes, so all the dust and ink needs to go away for a little while. :)

I seldom base a card off the bg paper, but the pretty tree and bird image on this paper just called to me. Then, I just added a stamped verse, punches and die cuts, some sewing, a couple of eyelets, sparkly ribbon, shimmery butterflies, and distressing. 

I used the Viva la Verve July 2012 Week 3 sketch almost exactly as it's drawn.

There's plenty of room inside for a personal message. 

Well, I'm off to do some tidying up. If the doll clothes turn out presentable, I'll post pictures of them next week. :)

Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful day of rest!

Beautiful! Love the dies you've used. That's a great sketch too. Everyone seems to be using it this week. I may have to go check out that blog. Thanks for playing along this week at SSiC. And good luck with your Barbie clothes!! So glad my girls have out-grown Barbies! Those tiny things can be a challenge to sew!
