From Courtney's Closet Challenge- Garden Gloves


Another weekly From Courtney's Closet Challenge! You can see Libby's challenge HERE.
This is a weekly challenge designed after the clothes that Libby's little daughter wears.
Here's sweet Courtney in her "garden" dress. At least that's what I choose to call it!

This card is basically all SU! I used an old retired SU! set named Little by Little. (a beautiful gardening set from 1994 I think!) and the current Itty Bitty background stamp set.

Tip: To make the yellow tie on the button I just cut a tiny strip of cardstock and threaded it to the back of the button and stuck it all together with a glue dot.

I made several cards before I came up with this one! I was having a mental block...I finally had to dig out my Verve Girl AnniVerv-sary sketch sheet! Julee put these sketches out in August, but I am still slowing making my way through all 12. Four down, 8 to go LOL!

Stamps: Retired Little by Little from SU! Current set Itty Bitty Backgound stamps(On the base of the card)

Cardstock: Green Galore, Gable Green, Pink Passion, GP white, Bella Press DP

Ink: Black, colored with prisma's

Misc: CB word folder, SU! ribbon and buttons

Card Size: 5x5


Don't forget to sign up for the blog candy...I will draw a winner Saturday!

Pin It!
