MMSC#47 Of Corset's Your Birthday

Here is my creation for this week's challenge. I am going to say I drummed up a bit of inspiration from Victoria Secret...can you tell!!! LOL Nothing like a Corset to offer us ladies some support in the derriere department. So, as you can tell, I am having a little fun with this one.The vintage picture on this particular card is made with the folded frame technique and embellished with lines of tiny pearls, mini roses, and the fan punch. I use a Martha Stewart Border Punch to create area that is laced up. I used the a spellbinders borderbilities for the lace on top. Rangers Tea Dye distress ink was sponged on all edges. This picture is a nice close up of all the details that I used to create this card. I just loved this Vintage Lady in her Corset. I layered her and used Crystal effects on the picture to make it look like a real glossy black and white photograph. The envelope is a kit from our very own Priscilla and can be found at her Priscillastyles Store. Priscilla is the sponsor for both this weeks challenge and the monthly challenge! I have to tell you I am hooked on making these envelopes now. I can't make a card now without doing the envelope. You will absolutely adore her kits.Here is the inside of my card. Lots more punches and details in here as well. Thanks for stopping by to view this card. I hope you have enjoyed coming and that you have found some inspiration to join us in the challenge.

I always sit on the edge of my seat waiting for your next card. You make the sweetest, frilliest, feminine cards ever. It is always a treat for my eyes. You are so good at endulding me with my craving for paper punches too. Just drooling all over your creations all the time. Then to top it off, you deck out the insides of your cards and envelopes as much as the front of the card. You are incredible!!

Happy Easter my Chocolate/bear loving friend!! ;)

Carol how sweet is this card? This is just so adorable with all the wonderful elements. Fabulous idea to do a MS border punch for the laced elements, it serves perfectly as a faux technique! Thank you so much for joining us at Raise The Bar this week!

Whoo hoo Carol, look at you with this gorgeous creation. It's always such a pleasure stopping by to see what you come up with next! I love that this is a little "naughty" just like Priscilla's card! Love those colors and the ribbon and the way that the black dp sets off the rest of the colors.
Fabulous, absolutely fabulous!
