Counterfeit Kit Challenge January Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Hop! Every month one of our challenges will be reserved for an end of the month blog hop! You should have started here:

Today's hop is inspired by a roll of our creative die: Card/Fashion/Bling

And here is my fashion inspiration:

I had all sorts of ideas swirling through my head on how to do the ruffles and experimented quite a bit with scrap paper. I finally just cut my favorite green patterned paper (jillibean soup) into a strip and then used a border punch to give a more ruffled feel. I added them to the card base at an angle and overlapped them to get the same feel as the photo. Then I bent the ruffles up to give it some demension.

I added cream at the top (that is the color I would wear with, but it needed some sort of separation, so I added a grey "belt". The buckle is a chipboard one I had that I heat embossed with silver. My bling is pretty obvious. I love my I-Rock! So easy and fast to use! Some faux stitching and a quick sentiment finish it out.

Supplies in addition to my kit:

I-Rock crystals, Fiskars Border Punch, chipboard buckle, embossing powder, CTMH sentiment stamp

Thanks for hopping along with us today! I hope you will be a part of the hop next time!
