Carrie in the City

Here it is.  The last Sassy in the City image from the fabulously talented Lindsey at Sassy Studio Designs.  This one is Carrie.  Isn't she just gorgeous! The challenge is to use one of the cities Carrie lived in (either New York or Paris).  I chose Paris.

My lovely and talented sister (Rebecca) sent me a tutorial and asked me to do that card so here it is.  This card is called "File in the Middle".  The card is from Dawn (sorry I don't know any more) and here is the link  I didn't have the exact size circle punch as she used but I think I did pretty good.

I colored her with Whisper Strokes markers and a bit of Stickles by Ranger and popped her up with some 3-D foam tape.  The Eiffel tower is from Free Vintage Digital Stamps, the first sentiment is Create with TLC and the second is my own.  The stamp is Stampendous using Tim Holtz distress ink.  I used two dies - Stampin' Up and Spellbinders and a 2" circle punch by Picture Perfect.  The papers are Core' dinations and generic.  The flower is from Petaloo.  Finally the white papers are distressed with another Tim Holtz.  

I am entering into the following challenges:

Sassy Studios Designs - Sassy in the City 4
One Stitch At A Time #119 - Summer dresses
Simon Says - Depth of Distress
Ladybug Crafts - Double Trouble (used 2 dies)
Pixie Dust Studios - Travel 
Frosted Designs - Circles
Card Crafter's Circle #29 - Construction cards
Allsorts #161 - In bloom

Wish me luck!  Thanks for visiting.
