HISSY FIT!!


This card took me days to get right, but I am pleased with the final result. It started as a challenge on SCS. We were to use leaves and pink in the same card. Well, this was indeed a challenge for me. I finally settled on this dress, a bit of a copout, I decided. So I didn't finish the card. Later I glanced at the painted dress and was hit with the thought that it would fit a Bombshell. So after MUCH cutting and fiddling, Lady Luck was dressed! I originally planned to hang the purses from her hands, but VERY late in the construction, after I decided to add some Hanna Stamps images, it occurred to me that it looked like she was throwing a fit! I thought a good hissy fit was perfect with her expression, raised arms and the sentiment.


I'm not an especially good engineer, so this card may have been easier for some of you than it was for me. I did have to do some creative cutting and drawing in on both Lady Luck and the Hampton Art Stamps dress. I just took my time and had fun. Don't forget to stop by Bombshell Stamps to see if there's a Bombshell you'd like to dress up!

I need this card! I want to tell my husband I "NEED" the Big Shot! LOL My thinking is he just purchased an expensive Blood pressure machine, so I should be able to splurge and get the Big Shot, it is for my "therapy" so it will help, right? LOL This is a CUTE card! TFS!
