My first dress form


Happy New Year Everyone,


Today’s card is for my DT post at Alphabet Challenge Blog
where X marks the Spot - Spots and Stripes...My card uses stripes and one big spot that has a B on it. This card was so fun to make! I was inspired to use Pink, because Pink is Bella's signature color.

   I used Nifty Fifties Cricut Cartridge, a glue gun, pink tissue paper, glue and a chopstick. Like we used to do in Kindergarten I cut the tissue and twisted it around a chopstick and put glue at the bottom and pushed in place with chopstick and release. I did this until the bottom was covered. I spritzed water on to my scrap piece of paper and let that dry a little. I enhanced my dress form by adding breast with my glue gun. I used glue to wrap the now more pliable scrap paper to the top of dress form. After all had dried I added a little bling with stickles. I added a La Petites rose with some bling flower picks. Lace from Hobby Lobby, &  circle stamp by Anna Griffin. The pretty pink paisley paper is from clearance paper stack which had no cover page so I don’t know who made it.

 I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
