Stamps R Us - For the Girls sponsored by Sassy Studio

This week at Stamps R Us, the challenge is "For the Girls", sponsored by Sassy Studio Designs

I was immediately drawn to this My Fair Lady image - one of my fave movies - and who couldn't love Audrey Hepburn?! 

She was colored with Copics (C00,1,3, E40,42, R81,83, W00,1).  I sponged an oval using a negative from a Nesties die, using Tim Holtz' Antique Linen.  I wanted to keep this one fairly "clean" because the dress is so striking, but I had to add some faux stitching, a rhinestone brad and some teeny pink pearls.  The designer paper is from Basic Grey (of course, lol).  The sentiment is from Verve - if SHE's not special, not sure who is, lol.  Had to tie in the ribbon with the dress - I love the way pink and black look together.

Thanks for stopping by -
if you get a chance, head on over to
Stamps R Us - the "For the Girls" challenge runs until March 6th!
