By jove I did it - I actually made a card!

 I was inspired by the scraplings posts on various blogs so thought I would have a go - and here is the result

Now you need a bit of imagination for this.

It is 1934 and you are in Paris!

This is what you would be wearing - honestly!

I used a piece of folded card 4"x8" and distressed around the edges with Espresso ink.
Stamped a background of hessian.
Layered on some paper scraps and coloured again with Espresso.
Stamped the image and coloured it, and used gold highlights on the rose brooch
(Which you can see if you click to enlarge.)

I rather like her cape, I think it looks like velvet now that it has been inked
Stamped the wording and mounted it.
Finished it off with a bow, having first distressed the borders with red then gold.

I thought this fitted the theme of 'Remembrance' it was remembering anything, fashion included for Tuesday Created by Hand
