40s Femme Fatale


Hi!  Me again!  This time with a birthday card made for a lovely coworker.  Everyone at the office commented on how much the image looked like the birthday girl- including the recipient herself!  I aim to please, after all.  This is 40s Fashion Decade from Saturated Canary.  She was so much fun to color with her classic, timeless beauty!  She's done with Copics, fussy cut, and popped up with foam squares on Resplendent Rectangles (Spellbinders) which also provides my sides and top along with Floral Ovals (Spellbinders).  In addition, I used Ribbon Banners (Spellbinders) and a Magnolia Doo-hickey flourish.  The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch as are the balloons.  I added some lace, a few flowers, black pearls, and a couple of Tim Holtz metal embellishments (game spinners, clock faces, and pen nibs) for the finishing touches.  Papers are Teresa Collins - Something Wonderful, and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up.  



I accomplished zero crafting this weekend.  But I spent all day yesterday reorganizing my dies and punches and clearing out unwanted stamps/stamp sets.  One of these days I will have neat and fully-functional craft room again where I can actually find and USE things!  It's a slow process, but I'm getting there.

Happy Monday, everyone!  Hope your week is off to a great start!

Copics used: E00, E04, E11, E21, R20, E25, R81, R83, R85, R89, N2, N4, N6, N8, 100
