Guest Designer CASology Challenge #313


Hi there blog friends! I am honored to share with you that as the winner of the CASology Challenge in April (cue card: Parent), Melissa has asked me to join them this week as Guest Designer for the cue card 'Dress'!

I have one of the original Silhouette Cameo's, and I never know if it's going to cooperate when I need a die cut...this week, I got lucky and found this lovely image in their store for my card ~

  
I started by die cutting the stitched scalloped mat, and to keep things really clean & simple, I sponged a light background, popped her up on foam squares, and added a scripty sentiment, which I embossed with clear EP. Lastly, I added the dots with my gel pen...and that was it! 

Be sure to stop by the CASology Challenge to see all of the beautiful cards created by their amazing Design Team...I think you'll be inspired to play along :) 

Thanks so much for stopping by,







Supplies:
Stamps: Papertrey Ink - Keep it Simple: 'Just Because'
Dies: Mama Elephant - All Prettied Up
Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Tumbled Glass; Versafine - Onyx Black
Misc: Silhouette Store - Pretty Girl with Flower (#76635); Black Glaze Pen; Ranger Super Fine Detail Clear embossing powder

I have a Silhouette Portrait that I won a number of years ago and never could get it to work right. I'm sure glad yours did because that cut is perfect for a dress challenge and the backlighting looks lovely.
