She's so SASSY...


Hello and welcome to my post for the blog hop!!  I'm glad I got to participate this month -- I always have good intentions, and then I either forget, or run out of time, lol.  Anyway -- tissue paper.  I went with Nichole's suggestion and used the piece that came with my order the other day, that had my new anniversary set in it...um, can we say...LOVE IT?!?!?  lol.

Anyway, I needed to make a birthday card for a friend -- and she's sassy...oh yeah...totally SASSY.  Now, while I don't think I'd ever see her wear something like this per say, but I think this sassy dress fits her sassy personality...

I made tissue paper 'ruffles' at the bottom of the dress, stamped with the 'dotty-biscotti - esque' image from the anniversary set in Raspberry Fizz, and then ruffled on my card front with some scor tape to hold it in place...finished off with some Raspberry Fizz grosgrain ribbon. 

The sentiment is from the anniversary set, and the print on the dress is fro Turning a New Leaf, stamped in Fresh Snow.

I hope my sassy friend likes her birthday card...I might even get it in the mail in time for it to get to her BEFORE her birthday...can you imagine?!?!?   If anyone knows me, they'll certainly be surprised ;).

Thanks for stopping by today -- hope you all had a great weekend!!
