Here come the Girls

A very quick post from me today.  At  My Time to Craft,  the theme is Here Comes the Girls.  So I have used one very classy lady on mine!

This card is a true mxture of stamps.  The colouring on all the pieces is done with a brush and a variety of inks from Big and Juicy pads.  The two background pieces are done with a lace stamp from the Artistic Stamper.  One piece has been stamped in black on to the coloured card.  The other piece has been heat embossed, and had the colour brushed over it.  The main image is from the Great Gatsby stamp place by Artistic Outpost, and the sentiment is from an Art Journey plate.

The border was punched witha  Martha Stewart punch.  The flower, lace and pearls are all from stash.
