Pals Paper Arts TWIST

Another challenge...(thanks Anne Marie for all the motivation) but this time anything goes, well sort of...the Pals Paper Arts Design Team challenged us to showcase our style. We have the option to enter two versions of the same card. A simple "day" card and a dressed up "evening" version. Here's what I came up with...
I just LOVE this Totally Tess stamp set from Stampin' Up! she's just so darn cute and you can dress up her outfit to give her all sorts of sassy style, depending on the mood. I paper pieced a pair of striped pants on Tess and then colored the rest of her body to coordinate.
The "day" version is bright and sunny with a pop of yellow and minimal layering. Not to mention, Tess is ready to go demonstrate why she LOVES SU! soooo much, with her cute little bag of supplies.
The "evening" version has a few dark accents and more layering with card stock. I also jazzed up her bag with a bit of Versa Mark & Dazzling Diamonds and added a piece of chunky glitter to each button. So Tess is all ready to go out for drinks with her stampin' gals!
