Ooh la la!!..........



Do you ever buy a cart for just ONE image? I do, and this is it..a french maid of all things!! I think that this image has a lot of possibilities. I was going to do a man's card with something like 'me in this?' on the outside of the card, and 'in your dreams!' on the inside!LOL! In the end I decided on a more feminine card using the scrumptious new Henbury Lane papers from Papermania. The layout is very simple, I didn't want to clutter the front too much and confuse the eye with too many patterns. When it came to the maid I tried several different colour combos...pink/black, white/pink,yada,yada,yada...in the end I settled with white over black. 'Fifi' (I'll call her that!) was cut at approx 4 1/2" in black card and white glittercard, assembled then adhered with foam pads to the pink panel. I added black & white ribbon with a layered flower, sentiment oval and pearls. The inside is very simple with just a punched border and scalloped sentiment oval to finish.
Carts used:
'Fifi'-Summer In Paris Special Edition
Scalloped oval-A Child's Year
'Ooh, la, la' sentiment oval-Forever Young
Thanks for looking!
