A Muse Bouche- Mandy's World!!

As a mom of 2 boys there are not a lot of "girly" things in my world. Good thing that I stamp - aren't the Mandy's World stamps the cutest?! I LOVE argyle so Balloon Girl jumped right out at me - I date back to the "preppy" days when we would wear button down collar shirts with a sweater tied around the shoulders, wool skirts, argyle socks and penny loafers. SIGH - I miss that look!
This card is a "tent topper" card (mishmash invented those some time back) and I cut my layers with my Nesties. I had quite a lot of boring green space so I filled it some with some scoring (courtesy of my trusty Scor-Pal). Adds some interesting texture and kinda reflects the embossing on the edge of the main image. Finished off with some clear Spica pen.
Stamps - 1-6135J Balloon Girl, 9-8588B Get better soon
Paper - A Muse Fern square notecard, 4b Robin's Egg and Papaya
Ink - Momento Ink in Black Tuxedo
Accessories - Copic markers, Spica clear marker, Scor-pal, Nestabilities - Labels Four
