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'. 

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