You Are Amazing!

Happy Wednesday, my sweet friends! I hope you're having a beautiful week. :o)

Today I'm featuring some fabulous Memory Box stencils carried by 7 Kids College Fund!  For my stenciling inspiration, I made a tag for someone who loves fashion and all things pretty!
The background design is the gorgeous Flourish stencil, which I inked with Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass distress ink. The dress form is from the Dress Maker stencil, which I fussy-cut so I could pop it up with foam tape for dimension. I inked the stand with Walnut Stain and the dress with Tumbled Glass. I laid the beautiful Tessatina stencil atop the blue ink and sponged in the pattern with Dusty Concord
The fun measuring tape stencil is part of the Dress Maker set, which I accented with pearls. I added lace and ruffly ribbons, along with flowers and a button for an assortment of prettiness. :o) The Wild Orchid Crafts flowers sparkle with Wink of Stella and the leaves are from the Tattered Lace Lacy Daisy metal die set. The pearl strand is also from WOC.

The sentiment is from My Craft Spot's Tiny Tags 3 stamp set, which I cut out with the label die from the Jar Basics metal die set. I used my favorite purple Jute String for the My Mind's Eye button. This was a FUN little project! :o)

A week remains in our current challenge at the 7 Kids Challenge Blog, so I hope you'll play along with us! Have a blessed day! :o)
