The 20th Century

Hi all!  Okay better late then never I guess.  I have been gone for a week on a vacation from the cold winter of Minnesota, so I had a little catching up to do.  This is the card that I created for Zoe's fabulous new challenge "The 20th Century" at the Craft-Room.  Our sponsors for this challenge are: Tando Creative.  One winner drawn at random will get a surprise parcel from Di the owner/designer.



I actually purchased this stamp by mistake about a month ago.  I thought I was ordering another G45 stamp from the new Botanical Tea line.  Much to my surprise, I really loved the set when it showed up in the mail, so I decided to keep it.  When Zoe chose the 20th Century, I knew this classy lady would be perfect.  This stamp set it from the Couture line from Graphic 45.  Isn't that quote from Coco Chanel the best?!  I stamped the image onto watercolor paper.  I colored her up with my Distress Markers and a water-brush.  The ribbon is some blue satin ribbon that I have in my stash along with the yellow pearls.  The little flower is a blossom from Prima.  The paper is from Graphic 45's Bohemian Bazaar collection.  I added some sparkle to her feather plume and jewelry with Stickles in True Blue.  I hope you like it, and will join in the fun!
