From Courtney's Closet Challenge #32- Jeans!

Yikes.....don't look too close at the stitching on this card...very crooked, but I was too short on time to do over...I just had this idea in my head and just had to go with it!

Here is my card for Libby's weekly From Courtneys Closet Challenge- #32.

I chose to use Courtney's jeans as inspiration this week. Anyone that knows me would know that I prefer jeans and a big warm sweatshirt or fuzzy jacket if given the choice...a fashion plate I am not LOL! I've had this jean DP forever, so I am happy to be digging it out and using some finally.

I dug out a pair of my Levi jeans from the closet and used the pocket as a guide. I don't know if you can read the little red "Levi" tag, but it says "happy". I also added a little lace with my new SU! border punch...gotta make Courtney's inspiration card girlie...I mean really!

The shape of this card was frustrating to photograph, so I finally set it on a frame holder..Viola!

Oh... speaking of Viola...have you read Becca's post on grammar here? Pretty cute.

Little Cupcake's inspiration picture!

Stamps: One of a Kind, Flexible Phrases...both retired SU! sets

Cardstock: Night of Navy, Jean DP-unknown, Real Red

Ink: Night of Navy, Real Red, Bashful Blue, Black (all SU!)

Misc: 1/2" punch for flower centers, sewing machine, copper brads, dimensionals, SU border punch

Pin It!
