She Wore An...

Itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday! This song has been in my head...you can see why!!

Here is a card I created for yesterday's Mojo Monday Sketch, MOJO142!! Normally any panel that isn't straight scares me, but I love this sketch!!

For my card, I used the AWESOME new Hangin' Out At The Beach set from Taylored Expressions! This set just may be my favorite Taylored Expressions set so far!!

I started by stamping the bikini in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and I colored it with Copic Markers. I cut out and embossed the panel with Rectangle Nestabilities and sponged the edges with Memento Canteloupe.

I added two ribbon tabs of Black Gingham Ribbon, and I adhered an AMAZING Jenni Bowlin Vintage Cream Button (I LOOOOOOVE these buttons!) and I also added a Black Gingham Ribbon to it!!

The patterned paper is from Early Bird by Cosmo Cricket and I stamped the sentiment, "itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini", also from Hangin' Out At The Beach, in Memento Tuxedo Black directly onto the patterned paper. A scallop border of black finishes this one off!!
