Crafty Gals Monthly Blog Challenge - May 2013

It's time for another Crafty Gals Monthly Challenge. This month we are CASEing Tracie's blog. She uses lots of Cricut and die cuts on her projects. I don’t have a Cricut and have very basic die cut shapes. So I found a card that did not use either but the image was of a little girl in a tea cup. I have a stamp very similar to that one and it does involve one of my favorite things, tea. I love tea and drink it every day. (I think I said this last month too!). The original card is here. I had to change my layout and turn it sideways because my image was too big turned the other direction. I also didn’t put the bling where she did because I felt my patterned paper was too busy. I just scattered some flat back pearls around the image. I probably could have used black ones and stuck with original layout more but I didn’t think of until now. May change it later.

Since I am a SU! hobby demo, I do have some of the sneak preview items from the upcoming catalog. I used a few of the new In-Colors and DSP that will be in the 2013-14 catalog that will be officially released on May 31.

Stamp:  Stamping Bella
Cardstock:  Coastal Cabana, Strawberry Slush, Baked Brown Sugar, Whisper White (SU!)
DSP:  Quatrefancy Specialty (SU!)
Misc: Gingham Garden Washi Tape and Pearls (SU!),  Prisma Colored pencils
