I got this image from stargirl for an Ugly Stamp Contest. I have been sitting on it for a week trying to figure out how to make it updated to today's standards with such and outdated stamp. No kidding, I was in the bathroom and it hit me, (maybe there is something to the magazine in there) use things to match her.... So this is what I did...
First, I punched holes for hair. I used linen thread and frayed the ends. Then I looked at her dress and it had double line stitching, so I used the retired double line stitched plaid whee. I also saw the stars and stamped stars from stars & swirls all over the background sheet. Then of course the most pronounced is the stitching... So I pierced holes all around the card... Of course to add a nice embellishment, I added matching ribbons like the one in her hair. I think I tied in all aspects of this image wonderfully...To tell you the truth, I really like this image and wouldn't mind having it for future use.... Please tell me what you think.. Thank you so much and TFL!!!!! :)

When I saw your title I thought it was going to be a bad one...LOL but this isn't, it is very cute! I never would have thought of using the linen thread to make hair, that was such a great idea. I like the card. Oh, and getting ideas in the bathroom? happens to me all the time...I'll unexpectedly come up with a great gardening idea or something...and of course there isn't anything to write with to take notes! Maybe keep a pen and notepad in there and if inspiration strikes you'll have a place to write it down...LOL TFS!!!
