Shocking Preparedness

Yes, I am doing a post showcasing the card I made for my soon-to-be 12 year old daughter. Whatever it is that is prompting this preparedness, I only pray that it's nice to be ahead. I'm **never ever** ahead...ever.

I saw this challenge over at the Wee Memories blog this morning on Facebook, and felt I just had to play along. I love the DT over at Wee inspiring. Jenny always has something cute to show off, whether it's a gorgeous card or a new stamp (can't wait for the new release of her stamps for The Craft's Meow!) but I hadn't had the time to play along in a while.

So here it is, my entry into their "use patterned paper" challenge. I used both sides of a sheet of Cosmo Cricket Earth Love - Remember for the cloud background and her dress. The ground is from a scrap piece of paper I had used to "mop up" a misted background that I thought looked like sand. It's much more shimmery in person! (Shimmerz Spritz in Treasured Hymn.)

She was cut from the Cricut Lite Playtime cart, accented with Stickles in Diamond and Cotton Candy.
Cosmo Cricket Earth Love Ready - Set - Chip! alpha and Bella Blvd. Sophisticates alphas make up the sentiment, the "12th" accented with Patina Stickles. Hand sewing.
That's it, hope she loves it :) Hope you all had a good weekend...I was able to not only make this card, but also a layout for a DT assignment due soon. Can't wait to show it off to you!

Love this card Khristen! That Earth love paper was so awesome. Thanks for swinging by my blog- it's been neglected lately so I have to learn to EDIT- if I have to spend an hour writing up an entry it's too long!
LOVED your project for the TXG blog hop- can't wait till we can reveal those! :)
