the design team have gone to town with this one, and i highly recommend a glimpse at their work! of course, your card can be sitting in that same gallery --just link it to the "from your closet" post by midnight on 8-17 and you will also have a shot at a rather fabulous prize: the current kit from scrapbook nook is up for grabs, and trust me, YOU WANT IT!!!
i am pretty pleased with my own card this time. i generally try to avoid buying product specifically for any given assignment--to me part of the challenge is making the abundance of stuff i already have work in a variety of ways. ...but...last week i happened to be in a scrapbook store and i saw these rub-ons from fancy pants:
and suddenly the vague ideas i had, involving pink dressmaker's patterned paper and vintage buttons and decorative stitching all coalesced around those three little dress outlines over on the far right, and i saw THIS in my head:
so of course i bought the rubs, went home, rummaged through my stash for additional sewing-based items and built THIS around it:
(patterned paper: fancy pants, mustard moon, basic grey; cardstock diecuts: k&co; rub-ons: fancy pants: bling word: mambi (thanks, elizabeth!) other: wired pearls, vintage buttons, fabric flower, colorbox inks, foam tape)
what's in YOUR closet...and what kind of card will you make from it?!
