My Fair Lady Dresses Hat Card 8 inch Scallop card
I had this card design in my head for about 3 months, and just couldn't find the right image, and when I described the image to a friend, (not a card maker) she suggested a Gainsborough hat was the style I needed, and an image of this Cd came up in a search on Google. it's Debbie Moore my Fair Lady Cd Rom. 

Dressed 1920s Style Flapper Girl C5 Card
I wanted to create a dressed card ( by that I mean adding fabric and trim to the picture,) I made a tiny headband by plaiting ribbon, made a cluster of feathers, and added the heart button, we recreated the dress from ribbon, and added the tulle shawl, and self adhesive pearls for her necklace.

Back view of the card again there was such a lot of weight on the front of the card we chose a similar image, and matted and layered it to add weight to the back

Girly to the max Download
But I have used the Oh La La Download from Delightful Doodles to re-create this card as well.

Back view of card, 
The sentiment on the front of the card was blown up,
and matted and layered
 to add some weight to the back of the card
 as there was such a lots of weight on the front 
it needed to be counter balanced

  10. Yvonne, hope the cold is much improved, you were feeling pretty miserable on Sunday I'd say but yet didn't in any way let it take from the workshop. The dinner and desert were so tasty and the cards are stunning. I just adore the Debbie Moore black & white one and my 'My Fair Lady' card barely landed on the table at home when my husband took off with it to accompany a gift he was giving to someone. Thanks for yet another great and very relaxing day. Shirley

  11. Hi Aiveen welcome home, see you on the 7th, slightly changing the cards for a variation
    Hi Shirley, yes I was, but the show must go on as they say, still have the cold, and just can't seem to shift it,and that's the first cold that's knocked me in about 20 years, must be I'm getting old.
    see you all soon

  12. Yvonne, the cards are gorgeous. My favourite is My Fair Lady Sounds like the girls had a great day with you. Hope you are feeling a bit better. See you soon. Linda Cameron
