Trendy Girl!

I absolutely love the vintage products out there, and that includes the wonderful tweed patterns and retro patent leather look!

The sketch I used was from Skipping Stones Design, as were the stamps on this card!  Aren't they fantastic!  Love that sentiment!
I heat embossed a large surface with clear on bright red textured Bazzill cardstock, then stamped the purse image onto that. Then I stamped the image again and heat embossed the black bow. Fussy cutting that little begger was fun!  LOL!
The red belt was done the same way.  It looks exactly like patent leather!

The sketch:


Don't you love that purse and belt?  I want one IRL!

Inside sentiment:

Sorry, it didn't show up very well in the photo,
but the little gold designer label is SOOO cute!
This card was so much fun to make. I was up till after midnight working on it, and then Blogger went out and I couldn't post...Yikes! 
I laid awake forever worrying about the cards for today!

Supplies used:
Paper: DCWV, Lady Couture
Stamps;  Skipping Stones Designs
Bow; Offray
Ribbon; JoAnn's
Ink; StazOn
Embossing powder;  Stampendous!
