I had big plans today to make lots of cards, and you all know what happens with big plans!!..........I ended up making one! It did take a long time though. Reasons will soon become clear.
This card I'm happy to say covers a good few challenges.
365 Cards Day 221 - Imagine This 'Denim', so denim had to feature somehow
Inspirational Card Sketches # 37 - Given Sketch
Crafty Card Makers #5 - Ribbons or Fibres
Pile it On #18 - 3-Dimensional, something not flat on your card

It all started with 365 Cards and the Denim theme...someone had already done a jean's pocket which I had thought of, so I went through my fashion stamps and knew this would be great, I also had a 12 x 12 piece of denim paper, yes girls I've cut into a 12 x 12 to piece this dress..:O!!! A bit of artistic license used here, as I'm sure denim could not be used in a dress and hat like that, denim stilettos I think would work.
I love paper piecing and had good fun but it took sooooo long. The orange parts were cut from the offcuts from making my Pumpkin Card a few days ago.
The 3-D element, I would say, is the sentiment mounted onto dimensionals and there is no way that that huge denim flower is!!
The sentiment is great, it says :-
"Nothing makes a Woman more Beautiful
than the Belief that she is Beautiful" ~~ Sophia Loren

Ingredients used :_

Patterned Papers - Basic Grey 'Boxer'
Denim Paper - Sandylion
Image stamp - Creative Stamping
Ink Pads - Versafine 'Onyx Black' for the image, Versamagic 'Mango Madness' for edging and Adirondack 'Denim' for the sentiment
Denim flower - Making Memories
Sentiment stamp - Inkadinkadoo
Flesh colouring - Copics: Milky White, Skin White and blush/ Hair PM Canary
Base Card, card pieces, ribbon flower and brad from my stash
