Sunday Stampers week 214 - Thursday 19th July

Hello Blog Friends!

Today's card is my creation for this week's Sunday Stampers challenge and the theme this week is embellishments. It had to be a quick card this week, as it has been one of those very busy weeks that have left me very little crafting time!

 I started off stamping the bodice from Creative Expressions Vintage Lingerie set, using  Perfect Medium and then I heat embossed it in gold.The largest of the Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles dies was used as my base and then I cut a dark red felt border using the Parisian Accents border die. I was trying to create a cheeky card along the theme of burlesque or 'peep shows' of long ago. So for my embellies I used a frou frou ribbon rose border, some Tim Holz Film Strip ribbon, a ticket from a sheet of kraft paper which has a whole load of the printed on it, a little key and a gold coloured 'dangly' - for years now if I have lost one earring (as I am liable to do), I put the other one in an embellies  box and use them on cards...well us crafters are the best recyclers aren't we?
