Anita Be Stampin Challenge 23~Shaped Card

Hey there everyone, here we are for another Anita Be Stampin Challenge.  This week we are challenging you to make a Shaped card.  There is a twist this week, to add buttons.  Now I know not all of the Design Team Members did this, so it is up to you.   I love to do shaped cards.  I love to use my Grand Calibur, just wish I had more Grand Nesties!!  They are on my wish list for sure!!  This challenge I used Tallulah.  
Don't you just love this GORGEOUS paper by Cosmo Cricket?  I love the purses and the gorgeous colors in this paper.  I started with my image, picked my papers and then my colors to match the paper.   The Happy Birthday stamp is  LOTV circular sentiments.  And that gorgeous lace is Wild Orchid Crafts.   Love it!!
I distressed all the edges of the card.  Do you see the cute paper on the inside?  So cute.  I recently hit a sale where all those 6X6 paper pads were $3.99.  Yup, I got a few!!!  Here are the Copic colors I used on this card.  
I hope you can find some time to join us in the challenge at Anita Be Stampin.  We are still on the Bi~weekly schedule, so you have some time!!

I am adding this card to the challenge over at Paper Sundaes Challenge~Girly Girl.
Clearlyistamp challenge is distressing.

I bet you got a few pads at that price... I do LOVE a bargain! I'll try and enter the ABS challenge early this time, lol. I'll have to make my card the old fashioned way, not having a Grand Calibur ;-) I suppose I could use my Silhouette, which I hardly ever do (dies are so much easier) Love your colours on this one, Dee

Okay this Rocks!! love the colors of this...and how you matched the dress perfectly! (that never happens for me!) You couldn't have asked for more perfect paper for that image. Thanks for distressing with us at Clearly Inspired Challenge #29 at www.clearlyistamp.typepad.com

Hope to you see you tomorrow when challenge #30 is released.
