March 1, 2017 Designer Choice Long Tall Sally




Every month we have a Designer Choice challenge and this month it was Laurie who chose "Long Tall Sally".  It has been "years" literally since I have made a long tall card.  I had some longer envelopes in my stash so went with that to size my card.  As you can see I carried my theme over to my enevelope.   I loved using these stamps.  The large and small  butterfly worked perfect for this card and the sentiment in the middle finishes the feeling of the card.  Colored with copic markers, had some scrap DP in my basket that I used on both the left and right sides, - masked my butterflies and used some Lemon Whip and Papaya spritz for the splatter dots and then finished off with a variety of yellow/orange enamel dots.  

 Now it is your turn to your turn to make a card using the theme Long Tall Sally and enter it in The House that Stamps Built challenge   
You do not have to use Repeat Impressions stamps but if you do you will be entered twice in the drawing for a $25 gift certificate to Repeat Impressions.  
If you look on my right side bar I also have a discount coupon for you to use when you go shopping at Repeat Impressions.
    
Now - take a look at what our design team has made to get you started.

Great card Shirley. I love the coloring of the butterflies, and the splatter background and DP is perfect.

I love making long, tall cards...and often do. I have an envelope punch board, so I usually just make the size envelope I need. Your card is beautiful. Your butterflies look so realistic. They're gorgeous!
