Todays challenge was to make a recessed card using the template provided. I must admit that it was very tempting to just cut a couple squares and use some foam tape and have the illusion of the recessed area, but after much trial and error, I was able to figure out the template and make the base of the card, whew....
The white card sat there a few hours calling out to be finished, but I just couldn't come up with a theme for it. I started shuffling things around on my desk looking for something and under a pile of papers was a couple new sets I had gotten from H&M stamps a couple weeks ago. So they get the credit for my inspiration for today - I just had to use the new stamps :)
I stamped the "bloomers" on different papers and pieced them together, then added some lacy ruffles over the stamped ruffles and made a little drawstring. for the ruffles on the legs, I just cut some slits in the stamped ruffle and kind of crumpled the paper there.

This is totally cute....I love your card...but I must admit...I too was admiring the grass in the background. We've had snow on the ground since November...and it is beginning to get a bit tiresome!! So Thanks.
