Miss Pretty

Hi All!  I've got just a fun little card to share with you this evening :)  I have many people who order cards on a whim- they see something they like either in person or on my blog and it makes them think of someone special in their life that they'd like to do something for...this just happens to be one of those kinds of cards.  A friend of mine was scrolling through my blog and called me- she said that she'd just had a great idea for a card that she'd like me to make for her sister-in-law.  Apparently her SIL has this alter ego named Miss Pretty- and she just happens to be a pin-up!  So she was wondering if I could make a card with a sassy pin-up girl and incorporate the name Miss Pretty- she even sent me a picture of her all dolled up so that I could color the hair to match and get an idea of what she looks like.  I'd already been looking at this awesome stamp from Kenny K called Showgirl but other stamps were calling my name so I just hadn't gotten around to grabbing her yet- but this was the perfect excuse (I know, I know, when have I EVER needed an excuse to buy stamps!).  So here's my pin-up inspired card- it was a blast to put together; I hope I captured the look and that she loves it :)  Thanks so much for stopping by to visit!
