Princess Leia & Mae West...

At least three generations apart - Mae West and Princess Leia, but this image made me think of my favorite quote from Mae West: "Say Big Boy, is that a pistol in your pocket?  Or are you just glad to see me?"  Talk about FLIRTY!

This card was created for the Aud Sentiments Challenge, "Let's Get Flirty - a sentiment for your significant other".  This image from Sassy Studio Designs seemed to fit the bill.  You gotta go check out the other flirtatious cards from the design team HERE.  It is now half way thru the fortnight challenge - so you have one week to get your mojo on and submit your entry!

The image was colored with Copics, glittery foil was applied on the gun, her belt and in the corners as stitches on the panel.  The sentiment was computer generated.  All three panels were matted on black and layered onto the base card.

This card should be eligible for the following
ABC - S is for Stitching (embossed stitching on two corners of the focal image panel)
2 Sisters #155 - Anything Goes
613 Ave C #31 - Anything Goes with optional sentiment
Through the Craft Room DoorAnything Goes
Paper Take WeeklyAnything Goes (optional a bit of vintage - do you count a vintage quote from Mae West?  LOL!)

Inside of card completes the quote

IMAGES:  The focal image is "Princess Leia" by Sassy Studio Designs.
PAPER:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# Cover Wt. used for the images; DP is from DCWV - "Tahiti Beach Stack; black mat paper is from stash; base CS is Georgia Pacific
EMBELLISHMENTS: Stitches on the image panel corners, belt adornment and part of gun are made with Duo Glue and silver foil.
INKS:  the image was printed on a Canon PIXMA printer & colored with Copics:

May you color with abandon, create wildly and always make what amuses you!
