Shabby Chic Dressform Card

Another lovely evening in the workshop.. I watched Dede’s live stream over on Ustream…

I made a couple of cards

and I chatted to friends on Skype πŸ™‚

I finally got around to using the Making Memories valentine papers that I bought back in January! .. the name escapes me but i’m sure its “Amour” something or other πŸ˜‰

I made the Stick pin using a head pin and some matte gold Glass Beads…

The Paper Doilie is from Wild Orchid Crafts and I sprayed it with Pearl mist.. the dressform image is a digital collage download that I bought last week πŸ™‚
