She is clothed with strength...

This is a late night post because I really wanted to get this card  up on my blog and I know I  definitely won't have time tomorrow to do it.
I used a Spellbinder die to cut out this pretty image, which was a free, pre-coloured, digital download, {sorry I didn't record the source}. Being pre-coloured made making this card fairly quick and easy. It also helped that I had the perfect DPs to got with it! [Some are by Authentique and some are by MME]. I distressed al the edges with Tim Holtz's ink. I hand gathered a flat piece of grey lace to make the ruffle around the circle. I also folder embossed the background circle. Once again I used the pretty lace I bought at Walmart along the bottom edge, accenting it with some pink twine tied into a little bow with a pearl placed at it's center. The sentiment was hand written using a white gel pen on a "faux chalkboard" from the Chalk Studio by MME.
Hope you were inspired while visiting.
hugs,
Nancy
