B&W vintage lady

This gorgeous lady is one of my very early stamp purchases (Paper Pleasure Plus) and I still love it as much now as I did then. There's quite a lot of bling (black Kindy Glitz glitter glue on the hat and dress; clear Kindy Glitz on the beads hanging down from the hat; and black gem earrings) but it doesn't really show up in the pic. Martha Stewart Layered Arches border punch; oval Nestabilities; two ribbons from my stash. I've used glue dots behind some of the flocked spots on the beautiful white organza ribbon to give it a 3D gathered look.

Submitted to the following challengs:

Stampin' Sisters in Christ #73 Vintage

Paper Cupcakes Tic-Tac-Toe (something punched, ribbon, bling)

  5. Fantastic card! Reminds me of the Roaring 20's when black and white were so popular along with hats, long beads and style. Beautifully done! Thanks so much for joining us at PCC this week. "Hugs" Carol
