Fashion Forward

I shamelessly lifted this card from Sandi MacIver.  I saw it on Pinterest and knew I had to make it for my niece, Jenny.  Several years ago when Jenny was hired at a very posh - upscale beauty salon and spa she was told she would need to be "fashion forward" and dress as though she were... shall we say a bit richer than the average stylist.

She pulls off "fashion forward" now with ease as if it were a uniform. : )  When I wrote out this card for her I told her if cards could be "fashion forward" this would be "it"!! LOL It is sure to make her smile.

I'm clearly not fashion forward nor am I up on "the" latest product because I know this pretty stamp set has been out a while but I've just been having a blast playing with Dahlias! : )

I stamped two images on the black card stock with Versamark Ink and  embossed them with clear embossing powder.  Then I  stamped two more Dahlias plus my sentiment and embossed those with an opaque white embossing powder.  Easy Peasy.  For the inside of the card I added a white piece of cs and stamped one part of a flower on the lower right corner - which you can see peeking out from the inside : ) Easy Peasy!! Thank  you to Sandi MacIver for the wonderful idea. 

Each month I create a card to give away to one of my followers : ) Please follow THIS POST to see the card for my March 17th drawing and learn how you could win it.

Have a great day!
