Right out of my depth

I had intended having a crafting day but the overflowing ironing basket shouted at me so I did that instead. A consequence of that is I have only made one card after all :o(
This is a first airing for 2 new sets of stamps. The art deco lady set I bought in Congleton on our craft day and the swirls are what I chose as my prize from Winter Wonderland.

I thought the swirls were just right to compliment the lady's headgear :o)
Background is Tim Holtz distress inks, then stamped the swirls on and used an MS cirner punch just to break up all those straight edges.  Lady coloured with Nellie Snellen markers which I bought on a previous crafting day. The lady is layered up but it doesn't show on here and I added a bit of glamour dust for a touch of bling :o)

Hi Jackie, this is a great card, the swirls and the lady complement each other really well.
When I had various problems with Blogger, I changed my browser (twice) and the latest one I'm using seems OK. I started with Internet Explorer, then used Firefox, and now I'm using Safari!
Just a thought!


Beautiful card
