Tres Chic

I have been busy creating but am am not able to show you anything just yet - as I am working on some SNEAK PEEKS....and having so much fun doing it!!  In the meantime I have something quick and easy to show you.

 I was sorting through my stamp sets and trying to streamline a little bit ( who am I kidding!? LOL!)  This stamp set was in the pile 'to go' until I took some cards to one the Boutiques that sells my cards and saw a canvas, with a dress on it that looked just like this one - so straight home and out of the 'to go' pile it came - well-l-l you have to give me credit for trying!!  LOL!

I paper pieced it straight onto some green up
the dress

along with a mixture of postal markings from various stamp sets

and finished off with a few pearls and some paper piercing.  It was as easy as that - I will definitely be making more of these.

This card is for the following challenges:
Crafts and Me - Gems and Pearls
Paper Shelter Challenge - Anything Goes
Truly Scrumptious - Anything Goes
Creative card Crew - Anything Goes

Thank you for visiting today - I always love to see that you have stopped by - your comments make me smile and I appreciate each one.  I hope you are having a great day and even manage to find a little 'crafting time!'  God bless you!
