Sophisticated Duo

Good morning blog friends, hope everyone is well! I was busy coloring and piecing over the weekend, this card featuring Uptown Girls Felicity and Blair. I had this vision before I even started coloring them, I knew I wanted to use Basic Grey's Little Black Dress papers to piece their clothing. It involved careful fussy cutting as the image is very detailed, but no as bad as I thought it would be.

I was having a very difficult time seeing the black ink on the darkest lace paper, so I couldn't cut it out right. I decided what the heck I'm going to emboss it in white. With a little bit of Copic shading, I was very happy with the way it looks.

There's even a bit of a charm embellishment hanging from the bow, a little pewter heart, Swarovski crystal and beads. Classy stuff for classy gals! This card took forever to put together, but oh-so worth it, I adore it.

Thanks for looking, have a great day.
