Tuesday Throwdown #219: Dress Up

So here we are, friends! It's the last Tuesday this month and we have a fun little challenge for you. With Halloween just days away let's play "Dress Up"! Our sponsor this week is Chi Chi Memories and I am using a cute little image of Candace in a ladybug costume.

You don't have to make a Halloween card - I didn't. As long as your focal image is dressed up in costume, you're in. So feel free to create any card: birthday, wedding, Christmas - anything you fancy.

Here's a birthday card I made for my neighbour's little girl who's 12 going on 35:

The bg paper is from Basic Grey. I made a banner for the greeting and added a few
buttons for embellishment. I used SB Circle die to cut out the window and a square
punch to make the banners.

I coloured little Candace with Graph'It markers, fussy cut and adhered her
directly to the base card... with her antennae rising above the window.  

Added a few more banners on the inside of the card. 

A few challenges for this card:

Artistic Inspirations #115: Anything Goes #115 / Spooky - AG
Card Mania #58: Buttons
Sieze The Birthday #10: Birthday + Opt Topping Washi Tape
Love To Scrap #40: Seeing Dots

Now it's your turn to create a project based on this week's theme: "Dress Up". For ideas and inspiration, take a peek at what the rest of the DT members have made. Remember to link up your project at the Tuesday Throwdown Challenge Blog by 3pm Pacific / 11pm UK by Monday, November 3rd. And the most important requirement: Have Fun!

Thanks for stopping by today. I'm sorry I haven't been around much. Been nursing a problem wisdom tooth. Every 5 years or so it decides to inch forward and sends me to hell and back. It's not easy being so wise! Hahaha ... if only!

  22. Tooth pain is awful!! I hope it passes soon. I had mine out 20 years ago, and every couple of years I develop pain in one of the spaces - bone reforming or some such foolishness. Ugh.
