Now bloggers, for my design....
This was a real challenge for me cause any of you followers know that I do not usually do "Vintage" but this week I decided to have some fun with a design that I first saw a little while ago on the blog of the very fabulously talented Marlena called Paper Papillon. Now of course many of you are familiar with Marlena's work as I only recently found out that she is a contributor to this fabulous Challenge Blog. So thanks Marlena for the inspiration.
This sidestep card was really fun to make and I only wish that I had taken progressive photo's as it was fun to see it transformed from a singular piece of cream cardstock to this. I cut the lamp and the flower vase from the card at the back and then popped them up so that they appeared to be sitting on the dresser. I then prettied up the back with some extra card stock and pretty paper.
I then decorated the side and made a cute tag. The flowers are all handmade and beaded (thanks Drew from Scrappy Happiness for your excellent lollipop flower tutorial). Now for the close-ups.
Well bloggers, that's it for me. Thanks for joining me again today and popping over to see what I have been up to. Be sure to jump over to A Spoon Full of Sugar and check out the designs that the other lovely designers have created for you this week also. Once again ladies, thanks for having me on your fabulous challenge site. Until next time, happy scrapping/stamping.
