C.Y.D.I.? Denim and Lace Challenge

Today is the first day of the new Can You Digi It? Challenge involving Denim and Lace.

To make this card, I used the Corset image from Dana's Digital Cafe and printed it out on SU! Whisper White and The Paper Studio Blue Jean designer paper. After paper piecing the image, I put on a little Ranger Distress Stickles in Rock Candy because who doesn't like a little sparkle when they are wearing something as expensive as a Corset.

I mounted the image on another layer of Whisper White and put that on a Spellbinders fancy frame die cut in black (Hobby Lobby) because it made the card fancier and this Corset called for fancy! I printed out my sentiment; it says,"The Little Things Make a Difference," - at least that is what the Google Translater says. My bg paper is from the Genuine pad from Authentique (also available in the C.Y.D.I.? store), and it is a house favorite per Michelle (the store owner)!

The blue jean flower was made with some old jeans I had laying around; I cut them with a Tim Holtz distressed flower die using my Big Shot. I rolled them around in my palm to distress the three layers, and then I put them together with a brad I think came from SU! (thanks to Kelly for that tip on cutting fabric with a die and distressing it to make it look like you have had it forever).

Here is a quick link to all the store products I used:


You should join the challenge - who doesn't love denim and lace! There are prizes! Below is the collage that Michelle put together to inspire us.

Thanks for visiting and hugz!!!
