Uptown Girls Audrey Loves Her Make-Up

Morning everyone! It's Friday again yay! Today I'm sharing a card I was asked to make by a friend at work for her Mum.  The brief I had to work from was that she liked Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn, that she loved fashion and that her favourite colours were black orange and green.

I must admit that I skipped the green as trying to put those 3 colours together really wasn't working for me on a card.

Anyway I chose the fabulous Uptown Girls Audrey Loves Her Make-Up from Stampin' Bella, perfect to fit the Audrey Hepburn part I thought. I actually used Halloween papers (just to show they're versatile lol) for the black and orange as they were the only papers I had with that colour combo, and I can't find them in the store now, but you could use something like Thrilling to a similar effect, I just avoided the more Halloween prints with bats and spiders.

I used the fab big stitched and pierced rectangles, these are great for helping to make a layout in a hurry with no fuss and i mounted her on some dies from the Make a Card #4 set.

My friend loved it and I must admit that after struggling a bit with it I really love the way it turned out.

That's all from me today, see you again next week! :) xx
