A Banner Bitrhday to Get Dressed Up For

I have been following the As You See It Challenge blog for a while now. Many of the designers are in my sideline and also my friends. This, however, is the first time I have participated in the challenge. Here is my entry to the Banner challenge #25:
To make this card I used all SU supplies. The DSP is retired from Sale-a-bration a few years ago. The Dress form is cut our of black CS using the framelits on a Melon Mambo background (I had it left over from a project a while ago). and the greeting is embossed on with white embossing powder.
I hope you like it.
Here is the sketch for this challenge:

This sketch also inspired me to create a few other banner cards and post some other ideas using banners and even this layout. I thought it was a really cute sketch so I wanted to play along. Enjoy the rest of my ideas.
I really like this for a congrats card.

This is another variation on the sketch. This card is for a baby boy, done in blues and silver.

I was having a hard time deciding weather to go CAS or grungy for the baby boy card so I did this version too.


   
This last card I actually created a while ago. It is a technique card I stepped up a card I had made for my Friend Laura's Birthday. As you can see the birthday greeting pulls out to reveal a LOT of happy birthday wishes.

Till later, 
-Jill

  2. WOW! You really got crafty. I really like that you used the dress form as a background on the top card. My favourite is the Grungy Blue and Gold. Thanks for playing with us.
