Good time girl!

Yay, happy Thursday everyone - just one more day to go until the weekend! My card for Quixotic Paperie today is for a good time girl!  Perhaps me when I was [much, much] younger, but definitely suitable for my funkier, younger friends!  I wanted to do a little paper piecing and I thought the hat in Kenny K's All That for the Whimsey Stamps collection would be perfect for it.  I used my Viva Decor transparent gloss pen for the button on her hat (look closer, lol!) and the houndstooth paper from the Webster's Pages Hollywood Vogue & Wonderfull paper pack.

 

And, yes, I do wish my waistline was that small!  Anyway, less about me!  Now, do you have a ton of brads in your stash which you never use anymore?!  Yeah, I can see all those hands up in the air!  In an effort to use mine up, I used my Bazzill Mystical Flourish Jewel Template to pierce the holes and create those funky swirls with those lickle ickle silver brads - uber cool, don't you think?!

I finished off the card with my Whimsey ticket sentiment stamp and Shapeology ticket die.  And isn't that butterfly cute?!  It's from the other Whimsey friendship ticket stamp set - these are so versatile I just had to get the lot!  And I'm saving up for the February Whimsey Stamps release - more stamps and new Shapeology dies!  Click on the piccie below that will take you straight to the section!


Other new items in the store are the My Mind's Eye Stella & Rose collection (FOUR designs in 6x6 pads), Prima 6x6 pads and the SCACD Stamps new release. All luscious stock!  Right, where's my credit card...

There's got to be the perfect song to go with this card. It's so very now. (Like a 60 something would know). I like the way you always complete the inside of your cards.
