My Favorite Things

Today's card uses stamps from My Favorite Things and papers from Basic Grey's Gypsy 6 x 6 paper pad, plus real red. The scallops were cut with Provo Craft scissors. The brads are layered on 1/4" black punched circles. Everything is stamped in black Versafine and colored with Stampin' Up! markers. The dress in the far back and the front, right bag were pieced in with more Basic Grey Gypsy papers. Ribbon by May arts.

I had sent this and one other card in for My Favorite Things card contest. I'm pretty sure it was just a random drawing pulled from all the cards sent in. Regardless, I didn't win, but I did have fun making this card. It came together so quickly.

Thanks for stopping by.
