Corset Card and Use It! #3 challenge


This card used the CardPatterns sketch, my interpretation of it and the challenge from USE IT!

Close up of the corset.....
When I saw Heidi Van Laar's challenge yesterday, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. The challenge posted on USE IT! was to 1) use some eyelets, 2) use something more than 1 year old, and 3) use something with polka dots.

The eyelets made me think of corsets. How sexy are they???? I found a website that had a template and went from there. The eyelets are oh, about 5 years old, and the same with the mini black ribbon. The paper is Anna Griffin that Kristen gave to me from her stash, it is dated 2007 (old for her, new for me....does that count?) The polka dots are embossed by the cricut machine. The pink lace is $1 store find.

If you don't speak French, the saying is "Si J'ai dit que vous aviez un beau corps, le tiendriez-vous contre moi?" Loosely translated: If I tell you that your body is beautiful, would you hold it against me?

My husband went "WOW! Love the card! But I don't know what it says." You know, it is just the tone of the card, the way it looks that makes me say "Who cares what it says, it is just plain sexy, the french makes it speak LOVE!"
