Couture

After making two "cuties" thought I'd make a "just because" card. Used two of my favourite stamps,
Tim Holtz "vogue" for the stamped background and B Line "couture" for the main image. The flowers are Stampin up and the tape measure stamped on the seam binding is Hero Arts . For some reason I have always stamped the Couture in Black and made black and white cards with it. Tonight I tried stamping it in red on a scrap piece of K&Co DP and really liked the look of it,however when I made up the card it looked a bit  dull so stamped her again in red on some whire card and stuck it over the top. The stamping on seam binding was not a 100% sucessful as its a bit faint but its worth another try at a later date. Been looking round at challenges and I'm putting this on Simon says stamp and show-  favourite stamp, Stampman-Torn/Ripped/Red and Sunday Stamper- Red. I'm also putting this on the new challenge at Craftroomchallenge
