…she sees the Lady of Sorrows


I have a Greek inspired card to share today featuring the sweet Betty Medusa image from the Teen Scene Gods in Love collection from Simply B Stamps.


No hideous gorgon here, this Medusa is Bettyliciously beautiful!

My card follows the current sketch at Outlawz, the lines in the background worked perfectly to create a column like effect that suited my Greek theme really well.  I have layer upon layer on this card with lots of foam squares to give all the depth so I am also entering this at Card Makin’ Mamas.

I wanted a fun sentiment to go with the image so thought this would serve as the prelude to something inside, the inspiration for exactly what hasn’t yet struck me though.  I have this card in mind for a friend’s birthday so will think of something suitable to that with a play on Medusa’s mythical stone creating powers and temptation.  But with my sentiment on the front I am linking this up at A Creative Romance’s current challenge.
