Breaking All the Rules

Greetings everyone. I hope those of you who celebrated Easter had a lovely time with your family. Our time together was lovely. Today I have a card to share with you that showcases one of the new images in the Quote and Quotables. It is a quote by Katharine Hepburn. My immediate thought when seeing this quote was to use it with the Flapper Fashions images. I began with a Mousse Souffle card base. A scroll work design was stamped in each corner with Black StazOn ink. A black doily was layered onto the card base followed by a TH Cabinet Card die cut that was stamped with a Flapper definition. Black liquid pearls were added around the edges. Two flappers were stamped on scrap card stock and trimmed and colored with Copic Markers and mounted to the card front with dimensionals. The sentiment was stamped and then punched out into a circle and backed with another black circle. More black liquid pearls were added to the sentiment circle. Finishing embellishments include black and gold ribbon and a decorative brad. Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous week. Yvonne
