Just because

...I haven't shared a pub recently and I'm going to be away for a few days. ;)
This card was published in the June issue of CARDS magazine...

Some pretty Hero Arts lace...

 A tiny hair tie and necklace (necklace 'string' is made from some jewelry wire) dress up the silhouette. Image was stamped with Versamark, gone over with clear embossing powder, hear embossed, and then stamped and distressed over. I'm pretty proud of myself for getting so inky and techniquey because I usually don't like to get 'dirty' with cards. ;)

Thanks so much for the comments over the past few days - I love reading them!

Have a blessed weekend!
