Ribbon and Lace.....

Hello everyone: I finally finished this card for the Freshly Made Sketches , with a sketch by Jane B., my hubby has been on vacation since last Tuesday the 29th. and, well.....it's been a bit difficult to get to my craft room, we've been going out a couple of times, doing some Spring cleaning, yard work and stuff like that, tomorrow he'll go back to work, 3 of my grandkids go back to school and I will have, once again, my much missed time in my craft room back. I've been working on this card for a while now and I almost didn't post it, I changed the background a couple of times, I've been really distracted but I finished it and I said "what the heck!! I'll share it, hope you like it.  Here is my card.


This is a very old stamp I bought as a package from a lady that was having a rummage sale on her blog, I didn't know what I was getting, it was kind of a "surprise" deal so, I took a leap of faith, since I really liked her cards and bought it, the $5.00 price tag for 8-10 stamps was very tempting, all I new was that they were "Feminine and Flirty". Well, let me tell you, all of them are beautiful and this one is kind of what the other ones look like. I don't know the company where they came from so, if any of you have seen this image, I would love it if you could tell me, thank you in advance.
I stamped the image onto Canson water color paper and lightly colored it with SU markers, the pattern paper is from Lili of the Valley and the sentiment is from Flourishes (retired), I stamped it with Stazon Jet Black ink onto vellum and fussy cut it, I adhere it with two little pieces of double sided tape.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.


This is the sketch that inspired my card.
I know I went a bit longer with the image but that is why I kind of broke it down with the sentiment across the bottom part, I hope this is ok.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

  1. Stunning! I watched a movie in Japanese (had to read the subtitles for 2 hours!) and it was about a Lingerie line, this is one beautiful Maniquin offering something lovely for Spring! The patterned paper is perfect and so is your layout I'm glad you got a chance to post it!

    1. Thanks Anita, I really been trying to keep my old routine but it's hard at times.
      But I love this image and I'm glad to share it with you guys.
      This stamps were purchased way before thoughts of a blog popped into my head so I'm glad I can give them a chance to shine.
