Our Creative Corner Challenge - Fabulous Faces

Good morning!  I hope your weekend is off to a great start!  It has been quite chilly here over the last few days but still nice enough to get out and enjoy the fall sunshine!  Before I do that, I am popping in to share the card I made for this week's challenge at Our Creative Corner!  I am super excited because I was asked to be Guest Designer this week!  Marjie is the hostess this week and the theme is "fabulous faces".

Here is my card:

I decided to do a collage of faces.  I started with a card base of SU River Rock and layered with papers from the Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden collection.  I stamped the faces with SU Soft Suede onto Cryogen White and sponged with Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Antique Linen, Crushed Olive, Tattered Rose and Tea Dye).  The faces are from Rubber Stampede (Woman in Repose), SU (Days Gone By) and part of a vintage stamp from Crafty Individuals. I stitched these to the patterned paper.  I used my Copic airbrush system to lightly color a few white roses from my stash.  Some Spring Moss seam binding from My Craft Spot and a Webster's Pages Sparkler finished my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Be sure to visit the Our Creative Corner blog and see all the gorgeous creations from the DT!  I am sure you will feel inspired to play along!

Have a great day!
