Smash and Marilyn with LoveBug Creations Rumple Ribbon

Mama LoveBug here - I love the TV show, Smash, and its Marilyn Monroe theme so I channeled Marilyn for some crafty mojo to create a double-sided stand-up card using Marilyn.  Her famous song quote - "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend" gave rise to a switch of my own - Friends Are A Girl's Diamonds.

This Marilyn is a digi stamp from Simply Betty.  I printed her out twice, flipping in a horizontal pattern to get the front and the back.  Then I colored her with pencils, gel pen, and Stickles for highlighting.  I printed out my sentiment, fussy cut the digi and then adhered her to white cardstock and fussy cut her again per each side (a whole lot of fussy cutting going on here).  I made a little stand for her and then designed the double bow.

I made a double bow from our Rumple Ribbon for sweetie, Marilyn.  These ribbon strands were from one of the special Valentine collections - Red Hot Lovers Rumple Ribbon.

I hope you'll watch for our Sneak Peekaboo starting tomorrow - a huge number of new ribbon choices.  Also join us on February 23-24 for our very first Creative Team Blog Hop - March Holidays!! There'll be blog candy at both events!!

Remember, no matter how you piece your paper and rumple your ribbon, have fun with it.......cyberhugs.......Mama LoveBug.
