Material girl

The wonderful Jane dared us this week;

I would love you all to design a card inspired by a design on clothing - I know we have done inspired by clothing before but I was thinking more about being inspired by the pictures/textures/slogans/quotes on tshirts - not just limited to the colours/patterns on materials.(although, of course, they are perfectly acceptable to!'

I'm thinking ruffles,stitching/motives - but of course you can be inspired by just colours/designs if you prefer - it would be great if you have a picture of the clothing also? Hopefully I have not made it a too difficult of a challenge?

As I seem to live in jeans and Quicksilver jumpers, I borrowed a t-shirt from the internet to make my card a little bit more interesting!

and I combined this weeks's dare with this week's delicate cottage rose dare over at The Shabby Tea room;

I used;

The Girl Paperie papers
Old denim jeans
Paper flowers
Bazzill chipboard letters
Papermania pearls
The Ribbon Girl button
Abakhan twill and lace

This is such a pretty Card Jo - the background paper matches the T-Shirt perfectly.

What a very cool challenge, and how well you've matched it with our challenge from the Tea Room this week. I love, love, love the denim frame you created from old jeans, and love the layered ribbon/hemp and flower and button, too. Gorgeous color combo and paper choices, as well. thanks for playing along with us.
