A Swell Gal!.......

I've got a couple of new carts people and OMG! They are THE BEST YET!!! I've been stalking on-line stores for the Art Deco and Teen Scene carts and at last I have them! The Art Deco cart is full of beautiful images for both men and women- or Guys and Gals!- and this is the first card that I made with it. I'm in love with this image! The walking lady and the dog are seperate cuts but I thought that they'd be great put together. The card is a standard C5 and the papers are First Edition. The colour palette is soft green, taupe and peach. Yummy! The lady was very easy to put together, and I added a few little bits like the trim around the bottom of her jacket and pocket, cut by hand, and a punched flower on her cloche hat. The dog was cut from two shades of grey cardstock, and a collar was cut from mirror card. I added green gems to the collar. The lead is a piece of fine silver cord which was adhered to the back of the dogs neck and the lady's hand. They are both adhered with foam pads to a shaped panel. The computer-generated sentiment - Happy Birthday to a swell gal!- was printed onto textured cardstock, then trimmed and matted. It was adhered to the card front with foam pads and embellished with a rose, and small peach-coloured flowers. A smattering of pearls completes the card.
