A Sophisticated Lady

It's finally Friday dear friends!! I was happy to see Alimarbles as the Featured Stamper over at Split Coast a week ago - we are from the same neck of the US woods! I chose her lace and glitter card to CASE.

I used a different sophisticated girl - mine is from Rubbernecker and her name is Giselle! I used browns instead of blues and greens and used a punch for my lace edge.

A funny story - I put two half pearls on my lady (ear and pocketbook) before running it through my Cuttlebug with the rectangle nestie (by mistake!) and it squished them flat and they look silver instead of pearly - which is how I left them on my card! so if you ever wondered........!

I sponged the edges of my image after cutting & embossing it with the Nestie but before taking it out of the die.

Just a reminder that there is a Friends of Waltzingmouse Blog hop going on in the WMS forum on 10/17 - click on the apple on my right side bar to see all the details!

Oh and I just have to share! - I was so excited to find out I'd won a Moxie Fab Alert! for my "Fancy a Cuppa" Holiday Container that I made from an empty frosting tub! Whoo hoo!
