The toughest part of this challenge for me was to limit it to three favorite things. There's definitley more than three of my favorite things on this card but I'll just list the three. My Favorite Things are paper piecing (the star), machine stitching and charms.
This stamp makes me think of the 1940's and the Andrew Sisters (here's an old video of them belting out the Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy ) so I inked around the edges of the papers and used tea dyed lace to get a vintage feel.
|don't forget the inside|
Here's the deets:
stamp - My Favorite Things "Blue Without You"
ink - Memento "Tuxedo Black" and Ranger "Antique Linen"
paper - Stampin' Up "Kraft" cs, "Patterns Pack II" dp and "Pawsitively Prints" dp
miscellaneous - copics; mini brads; lace; charm; twine; sewing machine; MFT "Oval Dainty Doily"
