Be Your Own Kind of Gorgeous

Happy Sunday!

It's a rarity these days for me to post on Sunday.  Usually it's my day with the Hubs, only since he worked last night, he had to sleep part of the day today.  So, I utilized my time wisely...gave Ellie (my granddog) and myself a pedicure, Tarheel style and then I worked on some cards, including finishing up this one.

So, first, here's pics of Ellie "spa-ing" ---
Now my card ---

Stamps: You are Fabulous - (Hero Arts)
Paper: White cardstock; watercolor paper (Strathmore); gold stripe DSP (from stash); gold cardstock (from stash).
Ink: It's a Girl pink (Catherine Pooler); Black Onyx Versafine; Versamark ink; Copic (for lipstick). 
Extras: Gold emboss powder; Scalloped frame dies (Pretty Pink Posh); Eiffel Tower die (My Favorite Things).

I started this card earlier last week and finished it today.  When I saw the Card Concept's challenge this week, I immediately knew I was going to pull out my new purchase of Hero Arts' set, "You Are Fabulous" a tribute to Audrey Hepburn.  I fell in love with it!  

I drew mostly on the pink and gold colors in The Card Concept's photo and pulled in the Eiffel Tower, using an old MFT Eiffel Tower die that rarely sees any love.  I had the pink watercolored background sitting on my desk.  I used "It's a Girl" pink dye ink from Catherine Pooler.  I versamarked and gold embossed the crown and fussy cut it to give her a little bling. Then, I stamped and colored the lipstick holder for an added girlie touch.  The layout just evolved as I finished each part so I'd say it falls into the Classy and Elegant style.  I mean, can't get much elegant than Audrey!
