This Week's MMSC36 Sketch:


My card is made with one of the D'Amour Allure images, Doris Mae.  I embossed on glossy cs with Ranger Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder, watercolored with SU! Markers and cut out.  The dp is BasicGrey Sugared.  Base is Bazzill and matting is Textured Gold by the Paper Co.  The diamond is made from the diamond pattern of the dp rather than cutting a true square and setting on point.

Lace, Pink Brads, Gold String from my stash.

Be very careful if you make a women cry, because God counts her tears. The women came from a Man's rib not his feet to be walked on.. Not from his head to be superior.. but the side to be equal! Under the arm to be protected and next to the heart to be loved.. Put this on your status if you agree and pass it on.

Oh Grace, She's so feminine and beautiful! I'm so glad you used Doris Mae! I named her after my Grandmother we lost almost a year ago. She didn't look anything like this stamp! LOL! She was short, round and full of attitude! But her spirit was beautiful just like this stamp! Thank you for creating such a lovely card! I'd like to add it to my gallery if that's ok?
