Housewife retro style
So far I've used a few NBUS ones, like today's housewife stamp, which I love but had never used. I believe I got her one or two years ago during a craft fair. She's from Lost Coast Design if I'm not mistaken. And I think she has something 1950s about her...
I cut a DP with spots into three panels and adhered the pieces onto a panel of black and gold card stock. Then I die cut a piece if vellum and heat embossed with gold using a sentiments stamp from LOTV. I also added three bling and a die cut banner as I felt the card was busy enough with the background of spots showing through the vellum. I had planned to add something red too, but I changed plans and added the bling instead.
This card is for these challenges:
