Here is my inspiration from Susan's 'beyond everything' gallery: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...&ppuser=101373
Susan's little girl is all grown up and is wearing a gorgeous blue cape that is swirling in the wind. She has snowflakes on her ermine muff and hat and she looks like she is hoping to catch some young man's eye.
Susan's card reminded me of this stenciled birch tree background I had made a while ago and my beautiful Victorian woman. The stamp could be Non Sequitur or some other artsy company. I actually have two of these; one has a background, one doesn't. The nonbackground one was not prepared to stamp so I used the other and fussy cut her out. I found some scraps of white glimmer paper and the corrugated paper, tore them and added glitter. I thought the corrugated one looked like snow looks when the wind has blown very hard across it and it's very very cold out.
When one looks through Susan's gallery, one must look at every card because they all tell a story and you can't see that with the small photos. I admire her 'this card just happened' look, even though I know she puts a lot of thought into every one. I'm a Susan wannabe.
It's a rotten weather day here today, tornado watch going on right now (in Wisconsin in November !!), hence my title.

WOW! I think a lot of us wanna-be-Susan, but I have to say you've got your own fab style - that birch tree bg is like something from a Grimm's Fairy Tale and then the white snowy banks contrast beautifully! And the beautiful lady in the swirly dress has a fairtale quality too!
