All the Bs

I went out for lunch with a friend today and we ended up at Hobbycraft ... and I just happened to buy a few bits and pieces, including some gorgeous black and white (mainly) die cut card and acetate pieces. I couldn't resist using one tonight, so this was stuck down the side of a black linen card blank (I ran it through my xyron to give unseen adhesion, adding the bows with bling. I stamped the Clarity sketched lady with Elzybells inky dinks whipped cream inkpad and heat embossed with white detail, adding tiny buttons to her hat and waist.

Not a very clear picture as I had to scan because of flash reflection on the acetate.
