MC Jan/14 - Easel Girly - Let the Beauty HB card
It's so nice when I get little nudges in my brain and allow myself to go in those directions... today's card had me going girly BIG GRIN. Now I love making feminine type cards rather than male cards, but I would never call myself "girly" orientated... but I ABSOLUTELY love the way this turned out. It's making me smile, and I'm sure whichever friend ends up getting it, will make them smile too. I used one of my most favorite facial images from Stampendous. And I love those clothes pin die, but it's the first time I've used it... And I'm using one of my newest acquisitions the embossed button punch from Martha Stewart. I'll be using that one a lot...

Anyway to see all the details and descriptions and other views etc, just click on card image and enjoy.

I'm using a Quietfire Design quote and sentiment stamp

Yogi, I've spent so long mesmerised by all the wonderful details in this stunning card that I actually almost forgot to say a few words .... I think the quote you have used was written with you in mind for you so obviously love your craft which gives so much pleasure to others. Your buttons look as though you've selected them from your button box, the pegs are wonderful as are the tape measure and reel of thread. All tools of the trade required by the dressmaker clothing your very elegant lady. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx ( OSAAT Team )
