…how strange is that clinging love we have of life…

This is my second project featuring one of the new commissioned images from Simply B Stamps, this one is Franken Cutie Helen, and she really is a cutie.

As these images are commissioned there is no theme to the collection so you really get images to suit any occasion, from the inspirational Fight for the Cause Nancy in my previous card to this image perfect for Halloween.  Not that I’ve really used a Halloween theme on this card, mostly because I won’t be waiting til Halloween to send this one.

My card follows the current sketch at Jo’s Scrap Shack, a sketch that was perfect for Franken Cutie Helen and the ‘stitched together’ theme I was going for.  I’ve used stitching on this as well as distressing, a couple of techniques I am particularly fond of.  With my featured techniques I am entering this in the current challenge over at Scrapping4fun.  This card features a couple of other things I am particularly fond of too, flowers and lots of layers.  I realy do love layering up my cards to show off various designer papers and really add weight and dimension.  It’s L for layers over at ABC Challenges so I’m also entering my card over there.
