Talk Nerdy

I absolutely LOVED this weeks Runway Inspired Challenge as I have a little confession to make...I was the nerd in high school.  Not the nerd as in smart nerd, cause that would be something to boast about...hehe, but the nerd that danced her own tune.  The model totally made that semi-nerdy look and OWNED it...which is what I hope to aspire in my kiddos.  They truly own their quirkiness as in this photo.

Yup...that's my almost 7 year old getting ready to go grocery shopping.  My mom would have never let me go out like that, but my kids crack me up and I say, as long as they are fully clothed, why not?

So on to my card for the challenge...

I was inspired by the colors and couldn't get that one eyed monster out of my head and knew I HAD to use googly eyes.  I had these cute little ones with pink lids and thought it perfect for this absolutely fun stamp set by Unity Stamp Co.

I wanted to emphasize the striped sleeves and decided to cut down my card front panel.  Used the large yellow panel with sentiment to represent the skirt on the model.  I needed to take a few more photos to get the whole feel of the card...check them out below!

Sorry for all the pics, but couldn't figure out how to best showcase the card and how it was cut.  Hope everyone is having a great week so far!  Tomorrow is my day off so stay tuned for more crafty goodness!!
