IC268 - Inpsired by Barbie !!!!

Growing up I was not a Barbie girl, though my mother did try. She also tried ballet and tutus with me and that didn't work out either! My daughters, however, have somehow inherited the gene and cannot get enough Barbie. It's an inside day today due to the cold weather, so they are already fussing with the dream townhouse!

Anyway the inspiration challenge at SCS today is to make a card inspired by Barbie. I love the yellows and plaid of this doll, All That Jazz, and came up with this card. I also needed a baby card for a shower - how perfect!!

I used Papertrey's Bitty Blessings for my card today, choosing a favorite method of mine - paper piecing. I embossed the carriage piece to match the background panel. The rest of the card is all scallops in greens. Hoping to get some more time stamping today while the girls are in Barbie world!

TFL and have a great day!

Supplies used:

Stamps - Papertrey Ink Bitty Blessings
Paper - Bazill yellow, green, white; Echo Park dsp
Ink - Memento black; Stampin Up Certainly Celery

Accessories - Copics, satin ribbon, scallop border punch, dimensionals, Spellbinders Nestibilities, Cuttlebug EF

  2. I love the embossed layer, I need to do more of that. Thanks for joining your non-digi sisters at Paper Pretties.

  3. PS - my comment should have gone on the cute little dinosaur card but this one has a nice embossed layer too.
