Lady in Red

The song was playing in my head all day on Friday while I was making this card.   The Gingersnap blue moon challenge for June inspired this with their theme of 3 papers, 3 words and 3 buttons.

The lady in question is one of Barbara Gray's Clarity Stamps gold ep and coloured with ProMarkers.   The Nestie cut mat that she is on has been edged with gold leaf pen.   The three papers are two printed ones from an old Trimcraft pad and the plain red one also nestie cut.    Three buttons are actually old gold coloured from something or other long ago, they are loop backed making it easy to thread the ribbon through.   The words have been punched out of vellum, the D punch has lost it's middle but think it is still clearly a D.   White roses coloured with the gold pen and leaves sprays also punched vellum.


CCEE Stampers   -   Use die cutter, if you have an electric one you must use it (Marie this is one for you!) I don't just my good and trusty Big Shot.
Fab 'n' Funky   -   Looking for Triangle's there are 2 the backing paper on the right is a triangle and the three paper flowers on the left are arranged in a triangle.

  10. This is beautiful Zoe! And thankfully I have the radio on, so that song hasn't got stuck in my head :P
    Thanks for letting me know about there not being a picture on my post. I had a feeling something must be funny with it, because every challenge I entered with a thumbnail, the image wouldn't show. Although it WAS showing for me, and the linky tools were allowing me to select it. Anyway, I've removed the picture html and re-added it, so hopefully it will now show for others as well as me (since I already know what the darn thing looks like :P)
