I Brake for Rubber Romance Divas

 
Hi, Braker Fans. I have a new card to share with you for my I Brake for Stamps DT project. I have moved to posting on Thursday instead of Tuesday. So I hope to see you here every week.
I Brake for Stamps has a new release of some really awesome stamps by Rubber Romance so I’ve used one of the Divas called “Robin the Dog Lover.” She is truly a Diva so I thought I would paper piece her gauchos and hat. Do you remember gauchos? If not, you are not as old as I am…LOL Basically, they are Capris with a flare at the bottom of the pant legs.
I’ve been into sewing and distressing lately so thought I would make a shabby chic card for Robin. My DPs are by MME the Indie Chic “Saffron” collection. These papers are so fun to craft with and have some cool patterns and colors. The collection also includes lots of cute buttons, trinkets and this darling sewn pennant so I had to add that. I made the lace ribbon with some tulle, seam binding and string pearls. It put the chic in my shabby card. Finally, I added some flowers and leaves and called it done.
I used a similar design for the inside of my card and it is ready for any sentiment.

She is so chic, svelte and in style. Your design really shows her off. I love the DP and design but it is your cutting that really amazes me, I cannot cut well so I am seeing how perfect you did the intricate areas. I actually think she needed a white outline to show her off more. Your card is awesome, I love it.
