Queen for a Day

Yesterday was my friend Julie's birthday. She lives too far away from me in Los Angeles, so I boxed up some goodies and sent them her way. This is the card I made for her, using some new stamps from Prickley Pear.

This is the 50s Lady stamp. I paper pieced her skirt with a pattern from the Material Girl collection from Cosmo Cricket. I colored the rest with Copics.

The sentiment was stamped and then trimmed apart, each piece adhered with foam dimensionals. I added some crazy stitching and some threaded vintage buttons (aren't they wonderful? I love when they are a little dirty or discolored.. just a great touch!).

Thanks for your stop today! Have a great one!
