Paint the Town Red - female card

The stamp here is by Penny Black, and the background is the city scene from Going Places cut at 4", then shadowed in gold mirri card. I did a bit of paper piecing, stamped the girl on white then again on pink spotty paper.The sentiment is computer generated, and should read paint the town pink given the colours, but it didn't have the same ring! The city background shows up really well against the black card, so I am pleased with the card.

My honey flies home today, arriving back in the UK tomorrow morning, so today will be a whirlwind of tidying and cleaning the house, making it look as if I have been the perfect housewife for three weeks instead of doing non-stop crafting!


  1. That mirri card works brilliantly! Excellent card, En! Bet you'll be pleased to see Mike again tomorrow. Have fun! ;o)
