CASEing Monika

Monika of Creative with Monika invited me to join a personal challenge, where she CASEs one of my cards of her choice and I one of hers. Monika uses lots of stencils and stamps to make her own papers. She makes many masculine cards and her feminine ones often include shoes. So I chose to case this card as I absolutely loved how she used her Prima girl stamp. So I took out my own doll stamp and got to work. I used a piece of scrap to paper piece her dress, colored the legs. And the stripes on Monika's card gave me the idea of adding a strip of vellum onto which I heat embossed the sentiment with gold EP. A very quick and easy card with no embellies.

This card is for these challenges:
TIME OUT Challenges - #37 Friendship is Golden
Allsorts - Share your favourite colour (Brown and I love gold too)
CAS on Sunday - #65 Vellum
Night Shift Stamping -  Paper piecing
