I'm Not Goth!

Here's a great image from Sweet Pea artist Teresa Sherman (plate #222) called "I'm not Goth."  So very perfect for those teens in your life.  I just love this image.  I dressed her up in hot pinks and black.  I used a card that is folded in half and will stand up, with the image sticking well above the card (fits perfectly into a 5.5" square envelope).
That gorgeous décor on the bottom is actually amazing ribbon.  It's been hand glittered and the beads and sequins are sewn onto it.  It's some that I bought while in Istanbul, Turkiye.  I don't know what the ribbon is typically intended for, but I just see fabulous cards I can make with it!  I will say at all the shops I went to in the ribbon district there, I did take a handful of cards decorated with ribbon and lace to show the shop owners so they would see what I did with type of items they sell.
The sentiment comes from Cosmo Cricket and the butterfly from Petaloo.

Have a great weekend everyone. I hope you will get some crafting done to have some fun.  Drop by Holley's Blog to see some wonderful blog candy including some amazing goodies from Sweet Pea stamps.  It's in celebration of two wonderful brain surgeries that saved my life three years ago.  All my stamping friends, including those on the design team here at Sweet Pea stamps were just wonderful and so supportive.  Hugs everyone!!

Cheers, Holley
