"Phenomenal Woman..."

As it is the second Wednesday of the month, we have a new challenge for you at
Words 2 Craft By  Our themes are always a quote, and with International 
Women's Day occurring last week on March 8th, our theme for this 
month is by a hugely inspirational woman, Dr. Maya Angelou......
"I am a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's Me"

Although Maya's poem suggests that women should be strong and courageous, 
I believe that in addition to those attributes, a women can also be feminine, 
so that is how I created my card. 

Unfortunately, as per usual, barely any glitter shows in the is on 
my lady's umbrella, her bouquet, and my flower sprays, as well as on
the die-cut  'With Love'.

My floral spray on the left side of the card.

This image is one of the very first rubber stamps I ever bought
and I have coloured it with Promarkers.

The floral spray that is along the bottom of the card.

Inside my card...I love those corner dies so much, I decided
to add a pair on the left-hand side.

A closer look at the inside.
