A fun Sex and the City Card!

Hello dear friends.  Happy Friday.  I hope you had a great holiday yesterday.
I took today off as a one-day vacation, even though we don't have any specific plans for the weekend... but 4 days off in a row can be quite necessary sometimes...

This is a card I made for a friend last week.  She just turned 40... I have to say she looks sensational!  Her husband throwed a surprise party and the theme was Sex and the City...

I used Cricut's Plantin Schoolbook cartridge to cut a city.  I used these fabulous papers from DCWV All Dressed Up collection.  This is a very old collection, but I have so many papers in my scrapbook room that I'm not buying unless they are strictly necessary (or if I just can't resist!)...  LOL...   Seriously, I do buy scrapbooking stuff often, but when it comes to papers, I have to be careful because I really have a lot of stuff.  And, I am using them... I don't regret to have a full room as my scrapbooking sanctuary, but just need to be careful.

Anyway, the patterned paper already has these fabulous swirls and nice black background... and the glitter in the city is also part of the paper.


I added my friend's name followed by "and the city" with DCWV and Glitz Designs stickers.  The brad with the shoe is also from DCWV (same collection).


Inside the card I used DCWV paper, several stickers and stamps, AC numbers, border punches, and more...  But the main tool for the inside of the card was this fabulous stamp of these 3 girls with purses and drinks...  It is from Unity Stamp Co.  I had it and I had not used it before... so I was decided to use it ... no matter what...LOL!


I stamped it in the main cardstock, and also paper pieced the clothes stamping in other color and patterned papers, and also colored with different tools.


My friend loved her card...  Do you like it?
