Life's too short

Only 2 sleeps to go and then I'll be on that flight to Florida!  But while I am counting down the hours, today I am sharing with you my Bellarific Babe card to show you using the very cool Uptown Girl Vienna on her Vespa...



I wish I had spent some time traveling the world when I was younger, alas I had bills to pay at a very young age so off to work I went!  I matched her up with papers from the October Afternoon The Thrift Shop pad and My Favorite Things skyline die.  I kept the rest of it pretty simple because the paper was busy enough.   Oh, and I added some Glamour Dust to the flower centres and her dress fringe.

Right, I am off.  Back tomorrow with my All That Scraps review post!



I am entering my card into the following challenges:

Hello Mary,

Not well, but certainly not lost the will to live, and how apt this card is, fantastic as always, super image and great colours.
Takes me back really as my Hubby was a bit of a Mod and had a scooter and was invited for tea for the first time but was nearly 2 hours late as he fell off his scooter and ripped his best trousers and had to go home and played hell, funny how things go round and turn around, pity this image was not a male as I would have used it on his 65th Birthday card this Christmas, pity I am not a great card maker as I would be able to cut her off and put a male image on.
Hope all is well with you.
