A Girl should be Sassy and Fabulous...

For this card I've used rubber stamps from Whimsy stamps -  Showgirl and Film Strip Sentiments.
I've heat embossed the sentiment, her shoes and the black details on her top.
I've used spotted and striped DPs, and I've machine stitched for the first time!
I've cut out the star with a die, ran it through an embossing folder, then inked the edges with walnut stain ink. A bit of black lace and voilà!
