Stamped pen on main dp, then added the flourish. Stamped flourish on the matt, then again on the back panel dp. Whoever invented the StampAMaJig is a genius!!! Stamped the Dream Impressions lady, colored, distressed the bg cuz somehow I got a small smudge on the edge. Argh! Stamped the Crafty Secrets thingie in the upper right hand corner and added the pearl. The set came with a rose, fan and hankie, but I chose MS small punched butterfly, folded in half. SU punches for the circle, stamped the Hello, then laid it on a piece of wax paper to do the sealing wax cuz it hangs over the edge - the sealing wax lifts off the wax paper. I checked the sketch after I was finished and my circle is too small. Weep. Shoulda gave the lady the hankie so I could borrow it. Oh well, so goes life on this dreary rainy day. :)
Have a great day and TFL!

First off, I like how you described that "thingie" in the upper right hand corner..I don't know what it is either..and I second your enthusiasm about the stamp-a-ma-jig (another wonderful name...it could have been called a "thingie")..This is a lovely card..love the Marie Antoinette lady, the butterfly fan, and the sealing wax..(I need to dig mine out..how could I have forgotten about that?)....an AWESOME job Mary Ann...;)

All that work really paid off. Help! I can't find your smudge. What a gorgeous card. Every bit of it and if you have a smudge, it should be there. I love all the images you used and the text BG is perfect. Love it.

Wow oh Wow!! What a fantastic card. I just love it. The wax seal is so cool. I'm guessing that "that thingie" in the top right is a light pull. Before they had wall stitches. Like you find on a ceiling fan. That's just my guess from visiting old colonial homes in the south. (but who knows. maybe the artist just wanted to add some flair).??
