Corset

Hello everyone, another dark dismal rainy day, when is this going to end? the weather men say tomorrow, and it will get colder for a couple of days, then the rain or even snow will come in for the weekend aarrrrrgggghhhh!

My mother would have been 100 this weekend (13/01/13).  My 4 brothers and their wives and myself and hubby are meeting at my youngest brother in the West country from different places of the UK.  A REALLY good excuse to get together, we haven't all been together for 2 years, so this will be a lovely and talk about old times about her. LOL.  SO it would be good for a little sunshine to shine on us for a change.

Anyhow, on to my card.

.The Less is More challenge - I am entering again, 2 weeks running after being MIA for so long.  The criteria being -

The beginning of a new year and the beginning of a new month means one thing at "Less is More" and that is a colour challenge and for this time we have chosen 
BLACK and WHITE 
with a touch or a splash, a hint or suggestion, a dab or a  patch of 
a colour of your choice!

I have done a card with maybe too much colour - nah! can't be, can it? Oh! well here it is.  The Victorian lady is off the web, why did I think of corsets? goodness only knows how my mind works sometimes, (maybe 'cause after Xmas I need one LOL) but I had to find a quote or something to go with it, plain Happy Birthday wouldn't do. I came across this one and a card was made, so to speak.  I coloured her corset in PS then 3D'd her on photo paper, I don't often use photo paper and had forgotten how much shine it gives, in this case the lady did seem to be off the card.  Hope you like it.
