Handmade Embellishments!!

This week's Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps challenge is brought to you by the loverly Melanie Holtz!!!  She'd like us to made our own embellishments!!!  Say whaaaat!?!  I thought this was going to be difficult....but actually, not so much!!

As usual, if I think too much about things, I make them more difficult for myself!!  If I had just moved a bunch of the ......stuff.....on my craft table right off the bat, I would have found the crocheted flowers I had made months ago!!!  Would have made things much easier.  Oh well!!

I decided to play with one of the adorable Lovely Lulu images.....I call her Tutu Lulu!!  heehee!  I decided to go very clean and simple with this card, as I thought the image and the embellishment should really take center stage.  

I coloured up Lulu on Neenah cardstock with my Copic markers and paper pieced her sweet little dress!  I used kraft cardstock for the A2 sized base and just a trio of strips of different MME designer papers.  I stamped one of the sentiments that comes with the Lovely Lulu set directly on the card base.  And lastly I attached a double set of crocheted flowers to the image panel and pop dotted it!!  Voila!!  

In case you like Lulu, hop on over to the KKStamps Shop and scoop the set up which is a Gimme Kimmies Kit at a discount but only until Sunday!  Oh and our Frugal Friday Specials are also up for the week!!!

Hope you are feeling creative and would like to join us for this week's challenge.....you have a whole week to play along!!  Hop over to the challenge blog and check out the Krafty Girls' creations!!  Can't wait to see your handmade embellishments!!!

Happy kraftin'!
