This is a card I have made using the latest MCS cd rom Fab Glam Fifties. There are sooo many lovely fashion images on here I am going to be in my element. For this card I printed one of the backgrounds from the cdrom and then used it to place over the handbag which I sized separately and also over the Happy Birthday sentiment. I then printed the shop window topper and chose one of the ladies to stand in front of it. She is cut out separately and lifted on foam pads. I superimposed a pair of sunglasses over her as I thought it went with her arm being up and also took one of the large roses and scaled it down to become a corsage on her outfit. I made up the sentiment as I thought she looked liked she was wanting a rest!
I'm entering the card into Cupcake Craft Challenges who want to see something new-which is the cd rom.
So pleased to have made the top three at Stamptacular Sunday with the last card I posted!

Who`se a clever girl then? Lovely card Lynn, loving that backing paper. Wouldn`t be great to have enough cash to get exhausted shopping? I`m sure I could make it my second hobby lol.
