Fashionably Sassy

In the market square today there was to be a fashion show. Apparently a famous designer from across the Pearlescent Sea was here, displaying his newest designs. The Lady Commander of Copics and I decided to have a look and maybe find something to replace some of the old tunics that are getting a little worn. When we arrived, there was no mistaking who the designer was. He wore a silky black tunic and a puffy pink scarf. The man seemed rather stressed, throwing his hands up in exasperation and shouting orders at his troupe of halflings. 
I created this card by stamping The Greeting Farm’s “Sunday” image on several patterned papers and painstakingly cutting his clothes and hair out to paper piece him together. I used the Art Philosophy cartridge to cut the large “stamp” border and embossed the edge piece with my Cuttlebug. I used the Rock Princess cartridge for the stars. 
Earning myself +183 sparkly exp points, I added some glitter to the stars and some square shaped gems to each corner of the card. The sentiment I stamped using the Dylusions “Say It How It Is” set.

On the inside I used another postage stamp cut from Art Philosophy and some stars I had left over. The sentiments were stamped using the My Creative Time “Wow! So Many Candles” set and the My Pink Stamper “Birthday Crazy” set respectively. 

I stamped the envelope to coordinate with the card. The green is a little “off”, but it was the closest match I had to the neon green I used on the card.


This sassy creation will sashay into the following challenges:
Desert Islands Crafters Challenge #52: (used #1- no flowers #3 - no markers #4 - follow a sketch #6 - use glitter #7 - bling it up

The Lady Commander of Copics and I didn’t end up purchasing anything as the fashions that were on display were a little too impractical for our needs. We did however enjoy the “show” as we sipped on tea at a nearby cafe and watched as the diva designer lost his cool on everyone he encountered.
