Pretty Petticoats and Pins

Well, after being late with my card yesterday I thought I'd double check that this post was written and scheduled. We're on a really feminine and girly day today full of corsets, petticoats and pins.

Today is Colour Create Challenge day and those DT girls have made me so proud again. They blow me away every challenge with the amazing projects.

Thanks girls, you're all one in a million!

The colours, as picked by Julie this time are PINK, BLACK and WHITE with an optional extra of TULLE. So incredibly feminine.

I didn't realise quite how much the inspiration picture had influenced my card until I posted a picture of this one on our admin'll see what I mean if you take a look at the challenge!

The Corset and 'feminine' sentiment stamp are from Clarity stamps. I added some embroidery sewing thread to lace the corset up, and because I only had white tulle, I got my black promarker out and altered the tulle.

I'm entering the card into the following challenges:

My Partner in Crafting Crime - Layer it up (more than 3 layers)

One Stop Craft Challenge - Spots and Dots

Sir Stampalot Challenge - Ladies & Fashion

Sketch Saturday - the Sketch

The Stampsmith - The Female of the species

So, I got even more inspired by the colours and ended up making all these pins too. I've used 3 of them on the card above, and I now have plenty ready for the next pink, black and white card (hope there's a rush of challenges using these colours soon. lol).

We're sponsored this time by Michelle's Scrapbooking and more. The awesome DT have made some incredible items so please take a look at them and we'd love to see you entering the challenge if you can.
Thanks for looking, Sharon xx
