Ladies of Leisure Challenge

Be sure to check out this post, for a Blog Candy Give-Away!!!!!

So, it's time for another Ladies of Leisure challenge. Actually, it is past time but the hectic schedules for May did not afford the "divas of dawdling" much time to get our acts together! This month it was Jill's turn to challenge Chris and I. All I can say is WOW, what an awesome bit of inspiration she had for us! If you would like to play along and be a LOL, please click here to look at this fabulous website of Flirty Aprons! We were each to choose one and use it as inspiration when creating our cards. One of my favorite color combos is light blue and chocolate brown so I knew right that this was the rufflie one for me. My favorite colors, stripes, polka dots, ruffles- there was inspiration flying all over this baby!First, I absolutely HAD to use the colors in this apron and did so using Chocolate Chip and Soft Sky CS and a small piece of Afternoon Tea PP. The PP, also, incorporates the stripes as does the wonderful piece of May Arts striped ribbon. I framed the striped ribbon with May Arts chocolate brown ruffled ribbon to represent the foo foo ruffle along the apron edge. Finally, my favorite pattern- polka dots -can be found on the Soft Sky embossed with my Cuttlebug and Swiss Dot folder. The fun polka dots on the dress of this cute little Tiddly Inks image from Stampin' Bella even furthered the theme. She and her friend are colored with Copic Markers and their sparklie crowns a gold Spica glitter pen (also by Copic.) The panel that offsets the focal image is CHF Pretty Patterns and my die cut brackets are Sizzix dies that have been distressed with Ranger Brushed Cordoroy Distress Ink then edged with a Zig painty gold pen. Bling is from A Muse and MAMBI.

If you do choose to play along, we would love to see your Flirty Apron cards. Just post a link to the comments in one of the LOL blogs! It's ALWAYs A Stampin' Good Time! Take care!
