Paper Challenge #5

We are finishing up the last of our paper challenges. The rules:
  1. Swap 1 - 12" x 12" sheet of patterned paper with one other person from the group of 5.
  2. Create what ever you can out of the sheet of paper you received from someone else and make sure you make one for everyone.
  3. Bring in your cards to swap.
This one was very difficult for me (a swatch of the patterened paper is pictured above). I couldn't use my typical templates, and I had a rough time with the pattern on the paper. I decided to make a set of Fashion cards by using purse dies and a dress form die from Sizzix to cut out the patterned paper. I like the crisp look of the patterned paper against the white background. I added a little detail with some bling on the die cuts, and also wrote a sentiment and drew a box to outline each card base. I had a good handwritting day, so I took full advantage. Can't wait to see what everyone else came up with!!!

Paper: Watercolor paper (Archiver's); Basic Black cardstock (SU!); Patterned Paper (Unknown)
Ink: None
Samps: None (I can't believe it either)
Extras: dies (Sizzix), black 005 Pen (Zig); Black Bling (JoAnn's); Silver Bling (Mark Richards); Apron Lace Punch (Fiskars)
