Fashion Presents - The Best CK #85

Good morning my friends!  Here I am, just a little late getting my card posted for Creative Knockouts. I knew there was something I was forgetting last night. Hope everyone is having a good week.  We have entered into the rainy season - rain, rain, and more rain.  I know we need the water but I'm ready for a break!  At least it isn't snow.  ;)

So, here is my card.  Our theme this week is Texture.  Add some sort of texture to your project for this week.
I decided to use the longer size card for this image. It fits into a regular #10 envelope. I used paper piecing for her dress and added some lacy die cuts and then just some little glitter glue on the present for added texture.

Materials Used:
  • Image - A Day for Daises - Fashion Presents
  • Sentiments - My Favorite Things
  • Cardstock - Xpress It Blending Card; Stampin Up Whisper White, Ultrasmooth Vanilla, Dusty Durango
  • Designer Paper - LOTV - NitWit Collection Country Lady
  • Accessories - Flowers - Petaloo; Ribbon - Recollections; Copper Glitter Glue - stash; Doily Die and Star Cascade Die
  • Copic Markers - E000, E21, E34; E41; E35, E37, E57; YR15, YR18, YR21, YR23, YR24, YR27
 Hope you'll come join us this week.  Our great sponsor is A Day for Daisies who has a $12 gift certificate for one lucky winner.

  1. I love how you put the doily die cut at the bottom and the starry one at the top. Great design for a long, tall card. I always like these tall cards. Of course, the image is perfect for it. Fabulous paper pieced dress, too. I had to laugh when you said you knew you were forgetting something. You sound like me! If it's not on the list... Stay dry!
