I’m Not Biased–C4C #99

It’s Crazy 4 Challenges time! It’s a new month so we have a new host—the ever-talented Frances is host for August and today she’s telling us to shape up! Yep, we’re to make a card with a shape that’s not square or A2. Get all the deets at the Crazy 4 Challenges blog.


Soooooooo, I shaped the front edge of my card with a Grand Labels Eleven Nestabilities die and layered some gorgeous paper from Lost and Found: Market Street by My Mind’s Eye. Then I stamped the sewing machine image from MFT’s Sew Nifty Die-namics and Stamp Set, on a Well Worn Label Die-namics  die cut, stamped off once, and the sentiment on top. I cut the dress form and stamped it, then popped it up on foam. Underneath, there’s a layer of lace and then the seam binding, button, and twine.

Here’s the inside with another sentiment from the set.


Sooooo, NOW, be sure to check out the samples by the rest of my crazy, I mean the Crazy 4 Challenges team ;-)

THEN, you know what to do--we'd love to have you come along and play with us. Just do your thing with the challenge and link it to Mr. Linky on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Please link directly to your project. And, if you upload to a public gallery, please use the key word C4C99.
