Paper Therapy-January 17 2011

Hello all!!  Welcome to our fifteenth challenge at  Paper Therapy.  Paper Therapy is an online forum for scrapbookers and card makers to share their work, meet new friends, learn new tips and techniques and have fun!! I hope you can join us every week in our challenges! The previous fourteen have been SUPER fun and we'd love to have you join us!

  Here's how it works. Every monday a new challenge will be posted in the forum. You upload your design   and have the chance to win the weekly challenge. A fabulous prize and winner blinkie will be awarded the first challenge winner of every month, and then subsequent challenge winners will win an awesome blinkie to share with the whole world, showing them that you rocked the  Paper Therapy challenge.

  This week's challenge was to make a shape card. That's right! No squares. No rectangles. At first all I could think of was die cutting a circle. But, then I started to think a little more out of the box (as I always tell my students) I finally came up with the idea of making a template for the front and back of this card, and the template was a little dress!! Perfect for any occassion!! When I showed my dh, he gasped with adoration which made me feel ohh so good. Sigh. I will miss running downstairs to show him my latest creation. At least I can Skype the card to him. 

I hand-drew a dress form for a template, then it out and stitched the front and back together.

Some yummy Prima pearls and paper from one of my FAVORITE 2010

Added some more Prima flowers and a butterfly from Jenni Bowlin.
