A Good Week

click to enlarge the photo
 A good week is when I have the time and the mojo to participate in all my favorite challenges.  AND I finally got to use this MFT stamp. 
This Jillibean Soup paper was fun for piecing.  It reminds me of some of the wallpaper and prints that were popular back in the 60's and 70's.  If you could see her feet she'd probably be wearing Go-Go boots.  What's that you say?  Go ask your mother, or maybe you'd have to ask your grandmother.  Ah, the good old days...

By the way I didn't neglect the inside but the photos don't look good enough to post.  I put two squares, one of each of the dps used in the background in opposite corners, similar to the face but those aren't squares on the face and then I stamped the image again.  This time with a Studio G chalk pad that I found in the $1 bin at Michael's.  The pad doesn't have a name of the color on it but it's kind of a buttercup pale yellow.  In the photos you can't tell that it's been stamped but in real life you can see it and it looks good.

So here's the deets:
stamp:  My Favorite Things "Who's That Musical Girl"
ink - Memento "Rich Cocoa"; Ranger "Peeled Paint" for distressing
paper - Jillibean Soup "Dutch Mustard" dp; Bazzill "Glow" and "Pinecone" cs; MFT white "Perfect Panel" for image
miscellaneous - copics; MFT die-namics "Dizzy Doily" and musical note; pleated ribbon; linen twine; Close To My Heart "Buttercup" brads; sewing machine; piano charm

Here's the challenges:
