18 Marilyn Monroes?

You got all the stamps for the last post except the feathery bits which actually came from here! I cut the stem leaves off the two flower stamps at the top - it was just lucky that they curved different ways!

Here's the latest card I've made, this time for my niece's 18th birthday:Again this uses the Time to Stamp Glamour Girls plate and I've layered it onto K&Co paper. The date uses Fancy Pants Calendar stamps and the corners are Prima. I've coloured them in with coloured pencils. The little candle is from the Stampendous Fifteen Candles set. In actual fact I made the card double sided so that I could have 18 Marilyns with 18 candles! Of course the card was so big it didn't fit any envelope, but then my cards often don't! If I had the time I'd do really fancy envelopes as well, but I'm usually very last minute.

Enjoy!

Helen

Helen. this is brilliant. It reminds me of those Hollywood musicals that were so popular in the 30's. I'm glad that you are still using the glamour girls stamps as I love them too and I've been adding the cards to a section of my blog as I make them. I'm not up to your standards though.
