Dress for a Lady with Chalk It Up

When I was a teenager our girls group at church was challenged to memorize Proverbs 31: 10 - 31. The real challenge wasn't in the memorizing, but in living up to the high standards set in the beautiful verses. Many of them were for married women, but even as a teen I wanted to build godly attitudes and character encouraged in the verses. I designed this card with a young lady in mind. It was inspired by the sketch at Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge and Bitten by the Bug's 2 challenge to use a dress or dress form cut on the Cricut. This dress was cut using my Nifty Fifties cartridge and the tiny sorbet patterned paper from CTMH Chalk It Up.

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:

Bitten By the Bug 2 - Dress or dress form cut on Cricut
Little Red Wagon Challenge #252 - Girl Power
Loves Rubber Stamps Challenge #118 - 2 or more patterned papers
Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge #212 - sketch

PDE Linky Party #17 - dies or punches (scalloped circle punch)
Shopping Our Stash #166 - use things starting with ABC ( arrows on dress, blue papers, crocheted flower)
Word Art Wednesday #147 - anything uplifting

Oh, Vickie, your card is gorgeous! I love how you've used the sketch so beautifully, and I love the dress form and your verse from Proverbs! I too remember that passage as a teen-ager and had a wonderful pastor's wife/Pioneer Girls leader who instilled in us the value of being a Proverbs 31 woman. It made a big impact on me! This will be cherished by a someone woman, for sure!! So glad to see another beautiful card for this week's ODBD Shining the Light challenge! Hugs!
