Base it on a Book!!!

Hello friend, family and followers I hope you commented last challenge for a chance to win a prize celebrating Christmas in July, my winner will be posted.

A new challenge is up and running at Shopping Our Stash....Inspired by a book, wow so many books to pick from. Of course I'm at the cottage and had forgotten to check the list before I came so I had to use the supplies I had on hand, lucky for me I have 75% of my dies here and managed to come up with something that was inspired by a book....and here it is.

I was inspired by "The Great Gatsby" written in 1925 by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Of course my first inspiration was looking through the box of dies and spotting the lady die and then looking to see what it would fit. I have never used the die and it is probably 1 1/2 years in my possession. The background die is about the age but has been used once. Hello die gets the most use. 

I die cut the fashionista in cream then in black, a few snip, snips and layered them on the cream image. The shoes were coloured with a marker. Added the rhinestone necklace for bling.

I'm really fond of this large Hello die, the set included Thanks and Smile, might be one more but not sure as it isn't with them. 

Finished the inside with a great Stampendous sentiment, I thought it matched the front quite nicely.

Thanks for visiting today and head over to the Main Blog and check out what books the rest of the design team have picked.

Awesome card, teammate.

Great card, Barbara! I've never seen Daisy looking better. Now, if we could only teach her to drive! Your background die really gives this project that old Hollywood, Art Deco look! Very pretty card and beautifully crafted!
