Tuesday Morning Sketches #93

Okay, I must remember that when going outdoors I have to wear sunscreen!! Took the students to the Botanic Gardens today and I wore sunscreen, but no hat and I am burnt to a crisp. We have another field trip scheduled for Wednesday, but it's only going to be 56 degrees and I'll just continue to smear on sunscreen and remember I only have 14 more days to go and then it's my break - YEAH!!

Today's sketch is awesome! As well as this week's sponsor - Sassy Studio Designs. She has some "hot" digis. I checked out her movie section which happens to be one of my favorite things. I love going to the movies. I had a hard time trying to decide which digi I wanted to select for my project. Once you go to their store you'll see what I mean.

I really love how this project came out. There's only one thing I wish that I understood how to do...the original dress is ivory lace. I think it would be totally cool if I could figure out how to put lace on this image. The image of course would have to be much bigger. It was hard enough cutting the image out let alone cutting lace to fit on the dress itself. One day over my break I'll have to look to see how I can add lace to a card....hmmm what a great challenge that would be.

My Fair Lady was a fabulous movie. I just love Audry Hepburn. I love this image. Now I'll have to get our sponsor to make a Breakfast at Tiffanys. I hope you liked my card. I love hearing from you - so please leave me a little love!!

Have an awesome day!

Stunning and so elegant Theresa. Love the classic color palette and pop of red on her hat. You know, I've never seen the movie, I really would like to, maybe over the weekend. A wonderful and elegant card.

I agree with Kathy -- this card is stunning, Theresa! The creams and blacks are the perfect color combo for this classy gal and the prints are so elegant. Gorgeous!!

This is a fantastic card. I love the colors. Hang in there you are almost to the ever so wonderful summer. Ouch on the sunburn. I am going on a field trip with my son tomorrow.. Will remember the sunscreen.

Beautiful! :) My fair lady is one of my favourite films, and this captures it perfectly.

I wondered if you could paper-piece lace on the dress? I paper-pieced my cinderella today, as I wanted the dress to have a self-pattern and it was one of these digi-sassy images.

Great visiting your blog today - you have been busy.
