TSC1 All dressed up

Well after numerous tries I finally finished my card for the new and 1st. challenge over at The Stampsmith Challenge Blog. For some reason I was having difficulty with my glossy c/s and couldn't get a nice sharp image . This one still isn't the best but I so wanted to participate in the first challenge.
Image is Marilyn Monroe from Stampsmith and was stamped with archival ink on glossy C/S . DP from BG Euphoria collection. I added tulle ribbon to match her dress and attached a ribbon flower that I received in a blog winning from Barbara Schram . Marilyn Monroe was such a glamorous lady and no matter what she wore she always looked DRESSED UP .

Thanks for looking

One of my fave SS Stamps. Sometimes the cardstock and ink just don't want to know do they! LOL Love how you've put this together, gorgeous colours.

I too thought this was a photo or printed off image. I love the tulle too! It is such an amazing card. I cannot wait to do this one next.
