On to the my project!

I made a card that I thought would go perfect with the theme.

After all forty is the new thirty right?

So Nicole, 

It's your night to go out and be fabulous!


To make this totally cute card I used Recollections card stock, 
Imaginisce flowers and bling
My most favorite is the corset stamp from The Rubber Cafe!
I stamped it on black card with The Rubber Cafe's Scrap Happy Glue.
(Super awesome Scrap Happy Glue)
I used the Rubber Cafe's You're So Fine Glitter to rub over the stamped corset
once the glue was tacky.
 The pictures don't do this card justice.  
The corset really did turn out amazing!
Thank you Rubber Cafe for the tips and ideas!

  14. I love the card and the corset is way cool. You need to feature just it in a blog and have close ups of it. I want to know how you got the details to show through on it because usually when you apply glitter all detail goes away. TFS such an awesome card. Jearise in Lorby's World at jearise at gmail . com
