Here is the line up in case you need it:










Marie Berquist (you are here)



For my card, I decided to go with the Girlie Girls.


I used this great image from the Art Deco-Ladies stamp set.  I heat embossed her with Black Detail EP on white cardstock and again in White Detail EP on black cardstock.  I combined the two, die cut them, and added to layers of gold and red die cuts.  All of this is added to an inked deco looking embossed background.  The sentiment is from the Vintage Boutique set, heat embossed in white on black.  

I had a lot of fun with this card.  You can find the full details on how to make it here in the SNS Gallery.

It is time to make your last hop to Brenda Smalle’s blog for some final inspiration!!  Please don’t forget to leave a comment before you hop, so you can be in the running for one of those prizes!!

Thanks for hopping by!!

What a cool card. Such a great idea!! Love it! I left the expo in pouring down rain. Grabbed a bunch of umbrella bags, covered up my goodies and ran to my car. Was soaked, but my new stuff was dry. LOL. Saw a HUGE bolt of lightning too leaving the Center. Goodness!! Saw images of it as I blinked was so dang bright.
