Happy International Women's Day

I'm pretty sure I have Word Verification turned off. Please let me know if you notice that it is still turned on. :-)

International Women's Day inspired me to make a girly, feminine card. Doilies, pearls, corsets, flowers and pink -- what could be more girly and feminine. I made this card for Freshly Made Sketches. This is also the first yo yo flower I have ever made. Always wanted to try but just never did...until now!
