what yummy colors today, Emily and I, like you, headed to the 'Eva' paper group from Basic Grey for my inspiration! Please let me know what you think...
My card base is SU's perfect plum. I stamped this marvelous (don't you think????) image from Stamps Happen onto GP white cs, created a mask (maybe she should be wearing ONE) and then overstamped Cornish Heritage Farms net backgrounder in TH di milled lavendar. My beauty is inked with Memento Tuxedo and embossed in clear, she is colored with Copics and I blinged her jewelry with stickles. The long stripe is from BG 'Eva' it is called Aristocrat. Red staples attach it to the main image. So really I think I have a CAS, too! There is the tiniest bit of lace tucked behind that Valentine Box.
And just a tiny tidbit...I don't know about ya'll girls, but my grandmother would always refer to her chest as her 'bosoms'. I would giggle and wonder if I would ever be so blessed...well of course the day arrived in generous measure! I did find a lovely definition of the word bosom: • used to refer to the chest as the seat of emotions : quivering dread was settling in her bosom. Now, I have no dread today, only lightheartedness! Have a wonderful day, all!!!
