JUSG #130 - Zipper!

Hello everyone. I made another card last night & finished it off this morning. I absolutely love the outcome!

Before that, I want to share a short story in the process of making this card.

I was bored because dear hubby was out participating the EarthHour event. So, I took my ink, stamps, embossing powder, embossing heat tool & sat down on the floor (I always sit down on the floor as I don't have a proper place to craft! Lol!). I stamped quietly, while Sarah was watching some cartoon. When I switched on the embossing heat tool, Sarah was going near me squatting & watched what was I doing! Lol! Then I told her not to touch the heat tool & kept saying to her 'It's hot. Don't touch ok?'

She replied while pointing at the heat tool 'Hot? Yes? Hot?' & nodding her head to acknowledge it! 

After I had done all the necessary embossing, she took it (the embossed images) one by one & inspected it. While inspecting it, she said every single thing I embossed was 'Pretty!' Lol!~ She's so adorable!!

Ok now move on to my card. I was looking at 'Just US Girls' Challenge #130, it's about using zipper! It's really interesting! So I decided to make one! This was my first time submitting for JUSG :)  My only problem is I don't have zipper that I want! So, I brought along my daughter & my maid to shop at a haberdashery! :D I found what I want! 

A close-up.
I cut the zipper & stick it on the lower part of mannequin to make it look like a skirt! :)

Thanks for looking :)

Maya, that is so clever! I have a black skirt that looks exactly like that...I love how the zipper looks like pleats! And I'm glad your little one didn't touch the heat embossing tool :) Thanks so much for playing with us at Just Us Girls!
