à la modes - I've Met My Match

Over in My Favorite Things land we are quickly approaching our mid-month release. Tomorrow night our VIP kit will be up for sale along with 2 new super chic à la modes.  Here's a peek at the first cutie.  
Set your drink down.....take a seat for this one.... I don't want you to spill or fall down when you see just how stinkin' cute she is.

The set is called-I've Met My Match! I'm not even a tennis player and I adore her.

I stamped her on Copic x-press blending card stock with Momento ink and  colored her with copics.  I couldn't help by pile on the die-namics.... I always do, don't I??!!!

I used some of the extra wide twill ribbon to cut my pretty posies.

Do you have a ton of that size left over and feel like it is too wide to use on most cards?? It works great to cut with may of the MFT die-namics.  You might need to trim a few of the threads to release it from the actual die, but I love the rustic/home made feel of them. I even spritzed the smaller flower with some Glimmer mist to match my paper.  

I also used the new Leafy Flourish, a dainty dots border (in hot fudge!) and stamped the sentiment on half of the Textile Rectange die-namic. It's all mounted up on the dee-lish whip cream cardstock!

Kim has the line up of today's bloggers! Check it out! and I'll see you back here tomorrow for another sweet à la mode!

Just wanted you to know that the comment box didn't pop up. I had to close your post and go back to it four times. Finally the fourth, this time, it dropped the box so I could click on it. Might want to check it out. Your card is nice. I love the image and her polka dot pieced dress is so cute. The flower and leaf look great ewith the dp. :)
