Wow, what an amazing card, Sue! Love the way you used this interesting stamp - (it's one I would not have known what to do with.) Beautiful work, my friend!

Hello Onion,
I must say that I'm pleased as punch with the surgical procedure you've conducted here. Without a doubt, a heroic transformation on these lovely ladies. As my eye always looks for balance, I was thrilled to see the lace in her hair and then complimented at the bottom of your card. Your splash of color is so pleasing and those keys to seal the deal...brilliant!
I've already been over to the challenge and have sufficiently drooled on all the creations. So happy to see you there. Like a pea in a pod. :)

Have a wonderful weekend...

I call that an elegant card, Sue! Love how you separated the two ladies for your creation. Wonderful use of ribbon and "edging."

I can't tell you how much I love your creation, Sue. It is absolutely sensational. What a gorgeous set of images and very cool to use them separately! It makes up amazing well into a b/w piece and I love your very subtle pops of color. The lace in her hair and across the bottom is truly the frosting on the cake. Awesome work this on this week's challenge!


Hope you have had a great weekend.

Hugs,
Linda

what a stunning card! I love how you masked off the other half of the stamp - very clever & creative! The added keys really adds some depth and the gem adds an extra splash of the same color! Great card!

Susan, this is such a stunning image but with all the added detail you added, it really takes center-stage. Love the pretty pops of color you added and the key charms are a wonderful finishing touch. That lace trim!! Can I just say...gorgeous! Such a beautiful, elegant card with the perfect splash of color. Hope your week is going well. Big hugs! :)
