Come Into My Parlor and Stay A While

Now doesn't this sound old-fashioned?
I first saw a card similar to the one I made, done by Lisa Johnson. She is the designer at Papertrey Ink that created the 3 PTI sets that I used. I have several of her sets and I love them all. The sets are called ON MY COUCH, ON MY COUCH ADDITIONS and CHAIR-ISHED. I used almost all of the images in these sets.
This was quite a job. Even though there was no real coloring involved it was very labor intensive. I first stamped the images that I thought I wanted to use on regular CS, cut them out and then arranged them. I already knew which DP I would choose. It is called LUSH from My Minds Eye. On the inside I used a white ribbon as a chair rail, I thought it would add some extra chic...lololol. I stamped the images on different designs of the DP and added some intensity using Copic markers B0000 and BG0000. Some of the images are popped up with dimensionals.

I only wanted to show the card with the bow tied but that covered up the images.

Boy, do I love that DP. I wish my living room would have such pretty wallpaper.
And for good measure..... another picture. A close up of the left inside. I hope I have not bored you all too much. I just wish I could take better pictures.... Whatelse is new, I keep saying this every time.....grrrrrrr.

I wish you all a good week and thanks for taking a peek
