Desparate...

for what is the big question!! I made this for my hubby's Valentine's day card BUT normally we don't celebrate - really in 19 yrs he's been home for maybe 4 Valentines!!

For this card I combined 2 challenges; Mojo Monday & MFT's WTG challenge; using 3 different pattered papers.

Maid for You from MFT is stamped on Gina K pure luxury paper with Mementos ink and coloured with Lyra's & mineral spirits; I am trying to get comfy with these and slowly it's coming! The couch is the 1st piece of ds paper from Little Yellow Bicycle's Love Letters. I tried to make her have fish net stockings - I figured if you were going to wear a maid's outfit you would wear fishnets RIGHT?! As you can tell these aren't in my house!! The rest of the DS paper is from Little Yellow Bicycles Love Letters. The Base is SU's Purely Pomegranate and the patterned paper is layered on SU Basic Black. I added Sizzix hearts to the pomegranate piece under the image. I stamped the apron & ruffle on her skirt (that's what my BFF said it was - or at least agreed it was) on SU's shimmering white CS and paper pieced it.

Ok if this doesn't make sense it's because I'm multi tasking because my BFF is on the phone with me bugging to post :)

Thanks for stopping by

Yay...you posted...'bout time {{grin}}!!! The card is fabulous! Personally, IF I were dusting (and that's a big if) I'd be wearing Lulu pants and not fishnets. :)
