Dollies FINAL Elements Challenge for April!

there's a brand new Elements Challenge at Design Dollies - get on it! the prize is HOT, seriously, and this was a super fun challenge (which wasn't NEARLY as difficult as i'd originally expected when i read the recipe!)...

we want to see the following:
1) 3 different patterned papers from the same manufacturer (if you can swing it!)
2) a tag
3) an UNCOULORED stamped image
4) RED ribbon(s)
5) something lime green

i scoured and scoured, and found ONE thing i wanted to use, then the rest kind of fell into place. wasn't sure i'd be able to make it WORK, but these Hambly papers definitely surprised me!
here's my card:

there's Hambly woodgrain, dress forms, and frames (i just cut one of the frames out from the sheet). the tag is a teeny-tiny one attached to the red ribbon. the rest is self-explanatory. ;)

remember, this is the LAST Elements Challenge for April, so if you're hoping to score those yummy Thickers, those vintage-inspired die-cuts, the cute clear stamps, and all the chipboard yum (among other things), you'll be frantically scouring now, just like i was!

have fun with it! you have until next MONDAY, May 3rd at midnight EST to play along... OR if you wait until this Thursday, Kristy-dollie will be posting the next sketch challenge, and you can try your hand at the TRIFECTA by Sunday at midnight. we have faith in you!


  1. Oh I LOVE love love love the Hambly!! I want..super bad!! I absolutely adore this card, it totally tipped off my "love it" radar! I may completely lift your non colored image though...I got an awesome dress form in a swap(actually from the wonderful Miss Adina!!) that would go PERFECTLY with this challenge...the gears are turning!!

  2. this is so gorgeous! I love sewing images, very stylish card! Hugs Juls

  3. holyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy wow!!! i loveeeeeeeeeeeeeee this leah!!! wow wow wow! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  5. Oh wow...I think this is my FAVORITE card of yours so far! Beautiful!

  6. Now this I can do!!!
    Totally DIG what you did here, so I need to play too :)

  7. Ooo la la... loving that card, and you made the criteria look so easy. Congratulations on your 'Nerd' status ~ I just linked across and it looks funky and fun and not nerdy at all :)

  8. wow, ok, see sometimes it really helps to LOOK AT the projects in addition to reading the recipe! b/c yeah--this one sounds like a *HARD* combination!!! but now that i see your card i realize: i have LOTS of "sets" of paper...i love lime green...the red can be minimal...i've got some tiny tags...etc, etc!

    not that my card would ROCK as thoroughly as this one does...but hey...i might give it a go!!!

  9. This is SOOO FUNKY!! I just love your quirky take on cards. You certainly have style missy. :) xxoo

  10. That card is so gorgeous Leah!! I love it. I really need to either make one of those dang dress form stamps or buy one because wow!! I love what you did.
