Feelin' Girlie

Saturday, September 14, 2013

This week's sketch at RetroSketches is based off of a card that I did last Winter. (You can see the original post here)  That version had a masculine edge, so I wanted to create a more feminine version this time.
This card was super fun to create.  I had used some older Dear Lizzy paper and embellishments, a vintage book page as well as some new stamps from Prima.  I LOVE those Prima stamps!  I adore the look of stitching, but I don't like using a sewing machine. There's a square set of stamps too.  Fabulous, aren't they?

I'm a Guest designer this month at the RetroSketches blog, so pop over and say hello.
