Be Fabulous - STAMPlorations Challenge

Hello there blog friends,
I'm back with a quick post to share a card I created for the November challenge at STAMPlorations. The theme is 'Stamps and Layers', and since I have my fabulous new stamp City Girl - The Bees Knees created by Shirley, I couldn't resist joining in!




I posted a card yesterday showing off this stamp set using just my Copic markers, so for this card I decided to use patterned papers for the trench, and a stacked die cut sentiment. I also layered three shades of SSS gray cardstock, glossy accents on her sunglasses and a few gems. I'm quite happy with how it turned out. 

Thanks so much for stopping by ~
