Alfonse Mucha style - take 3

I truly loved using the decoupage 'Alfonse Mucha style' ladies I bought in The Range a while ago. This is the last card:
I used:

- 6" x 6" square white card stock

-the decoupage sheet that was bought, nameless, from The Range

- patterned card from a Teresa Collins designer pad called 'Sweet Afternoon' , sent to me by Mary Mac. I'd never come across this brand before and the papers are divine - thank you once again Mary!

- plain card is SU's 'Bashful Blue', and I punched the bottom border using Martha Stewart's fabulous punch 'Traditional Scallop' - oh how I love this punch, just bought it this week and am 'pickled tink' with it :)

- the little added corners were die cut in 'Bashful Blue' using a Whimsy Corner die

- ribbon from the ribbon box, right across and then an additional piece folded to make a flat 'bow', with a pale blue pearlescent gemstone popped on top

Then I stood back and left it well alone, no sentiment or anything :)

OK, so today is the day - a group of us from the Snippets Playground are heading for Alexandra Palace (just North of London)  to meet up at the 'Big Scrapbooking and Stamping Show'. If I just drop the names Mrs A, Sarn, Sam (Hettie) and Rach you'll know to watch the evening news in case of any over-excited fun and games. I'll be the one wearing the bright yellow 'duster knickers' on me head and huge dark sunglasses as a disguise just so I don't stand out in the crowds.................and probably with a whistle on a cord round me neck in a vain attempt to restore order :)

A full report will be posted - once I recover! Wish us luck :)

Morning Di. What a stunning card. I love these ladies. I have the Winter one on my fire place. i didn't know they did them in decoupage!!
Hope you manage to keep order today. They might have trouble seeing you in the crowd in that disguise. Hope you keep that Hettie in order, she's the worst of the bunch!!
Have a brilliant day.

I really love these AM designs Di. I can see why you were smitten with them.

What a great time we had yesterday. Thank you to you and my other little playground hooligan chums for a FAB day out.

PS: To those of you that refused to have anything to do with us . . . Di REALLY did bring her duster knickers with her! AND a pair of white glove for her formal handshakes!!! LOL!
