You "GoGo" Girl!
Good morning! I have a fun card to share with you today.... Yesterday I was blurfing and my friend Kathleen had the most amazing card that I just had to CASE it. (Check it out HERE)I loved both her image and layout, so I used those as a starting point and put my own twist on it.
I remembered this fun DP that I've had in my stash for a looong time...I thought the retro vibe was perfect for this image and couldn't wait to paper piece her dress! As I was cutting it out, I really questioned my choice...the pieces are tiny! The image is colored with pencils and I added some subtle glitter to her headband, belt, and boots. I used some dies from The Cat's Pajamas for the border and the sentiment. I added some (actually LOTS!) of Swarovski flatback crystals to "bling it up" a bit.
