Feminine and Masculine Cards

A few weeks ago I made a Father's Day card following the 'Design Details'
technique in Tim Holtz' book Compendium of Curiosities.
My blog post for the masculine card is here.

With Mother's Day coming up I decided to use the same technique
to make a feminine card.

Of course it had to be pretty in pink!
Again I used various scraps of paper and some pink brads,
pink wire and lilac embroidery thread.

The stamp is the gorgeous 'Moth Fab' by Stampotique.
She is stamped onto white card, cut out
and attached to the background with 3D pads.

Thanks for looking and I hope the sun shines on you
this weekend whatever you're doing xx

Very pretty, I love Moth Fab's cheeks. Has she just been caught ogling Bowtie and is now mortified because she is really to cool to ogle?
Have a great weekend, though we are not forecast sun; see? we should have gone outside yesterday!!!!
