I began by stamping the image by MFT Girls Night In on white cardstock and again on a scrap of Basic Grey Wisteria paper. I cut out the robe from the pp and glued it to my image on white. I colored in her skin and the chair. I sponged ink around this white layer. I matted it to eggplant and creamy caramel. I used eggplant as my base card also but we couldn't count that one as a layer. I picked out two more patterns from the Wisteria paper pack and added them to the card front. I stamped the image from MFT and cut it out using a Nestie ribbon die. Small scraps of organdy ribbon were glued to each end of the sentiment. Stickles were added to her robe, although they look kinda globby in the picture, they don't look that bad IRL. The last touch was to add the three dew drops to the top corner. Now for the exciting part of this card. As I was putting it together I didn't remember if the hostess was allowing us to use the card base as one layer. I opened up the chat thread for the challenge and was reading along to find out that no, we couldn't use the base. All of a sudden one of the pit bosses (prize givers) posted that the next person to tell her why they needed a scor tote would win one. I took my chance that I would be the first to answer and responded back. Well, I was the first one to reply and I won the tote! How fun was that?! When my Mom saw the card she immediately thought of her sister, my Aunt Blanche who babysits her grandkids alot. So this card will be on its way to her soon.

Here is another card I made last weekend for SCS Virtual Stamping Weekend with a Las Vegas theme to it. The 5 pm challenge on Saturday was titled Shopping in Vegas. We had to make a card that had 5 layers, 3 different inks, one image, one sentiment, 3 dew drops, sponging, stickles and ribbon.
