Vintage lady

Today's card was made ages ago for a Hero arts challenge. I have used a very fine cream mesh over the stamped image - its actually a mesh that is used in book binding I was told by the shop. I find it very effective but unfortunately doesn't photograph well on cards.
I have also used a paint chip sample on the card to place the buttons on - everytime I am in a store that sells paint, I grab a few more paint chip samples.
Materials: Antique gold mineralis cardstock, cream cardstock, black cardstock, cream mesh, handbag charm, buttons, pearl, cream organza ribbon, paint chip sample, gold encore ink pad, brown ink pad, Hero arts writing stamp and lady stamp.
Method: Fold antique gold cardstock in half to create base card. Take strip of cream cardstock and tear down one side and them using gold encore ink pad, stamp words repeatedly down the cardstock and attach to cardfront as shown. Using brown ink pad, stamp woman onto cream cardstock and heat set and then cover with cream mesh and secure at back and then mount onto black and then cream cardstock and to cardfront as shown. Attach paint sample strip and then add buttons to it. Attach organza cream ribbon and pearl and handbag charm.
Enjoy what's left of the weekend everyone.
