Stamps R Us Challenge #15 – One For The Girls!

Wow, where did those two weeks go, I can’t believe it’s time for another challenge at Stamps R Us!  This time around we want to see something for girls and use a girl stamp.  We are so lucky, to have as our sponsor Sassy Studio Designs, and they so generously offered up 4 digi’s of your choice at the SSD store.  Are you the lucky winner this time?

                    Back To School Brittany

This image from SSD is called “Back To School Brittany”.  I colored the image with copics, and then cut it out, and layered it on the Spellbinders beaded oval die.  The designer papers are from the Olivia Paper Pad by Basic Grey.  I machine stitched around the card with pink thread, unfortunately it’s hard to see in the picture.  I also machine stitched above and below the ribbon with both pink and green thread.  I used the same paper to make the rolled rose buds.  Border punch is by Martha Stuart.  The ribbon and the shiny brad are from my stash of leftovers!
