Another CAS

I said I'd made a couple more CAS cards and here's another.
I love this Marianne die - think it's really delicate  and it's useful for these kind of clean and simple cards as it adds a bit of a 'lift' to the design without over embellishing.
I used bright white linen textured card  and embossed two lines.The spots were done using a Tim Holtz stamp inked with 'Spun Sugar' DI and I duster brushed round the inside of the frame.
The dress form and lacy banner stamps are by My Mind's Eye inked in Versamark Onyx Black with the banner stamped across a scrap piece of paper already coloured with the DI.
I thought it looked a bit too'clean and simple' so added some tiny pearls to the lacy banner, to the middle of the dress form and also a couple to the top of the card!
It's been a bit of a blustery day here - we've had some heavy showers and some lovely blue sky - but it's windy and not very warm at all!
We've been out and had a (light????) lunch - beef stroganoff for me but of course had to have some cheesy garlic bread too so am feeling over fed - but at least I don't have to worry about what to have for tea!!!!!!
