A little G45 ish

I had to do a swap this week using a g45 stamp, any g45 stamp.  I have a bunch so that was going to be an easy swap.  Except on thing, the stamps were packed and sealed.  And I wasn't about to start unpacking and looking for one stamp.  I had a backup plan.
I own  a copy of the public domain art the stamp came from in the first place!  Here it is, you can have it too!
 I have some crafty stuff unpacked, but not much. I really wanted to make a card with a lot of pop.  There are so many card makers out there and so many tutorials and demos and don't even get me going on cas-ing and Pinterest - you card makers know what I mean!!  I wanted this to also be a little different!  When you only have scraps to work with you really do become a little more clever.

I wouldn't have reached for this specialty as a first choice :
I just added a little ink and it became quite special!!

But that still leaves me with the image and a LOT of white space, I'm really not fond of white space unless it is a CAS card. 

So I fussy cut the image, glittered her dress, found a feather and made a boas.

Then I dug in my odd paper drawer and found this tissue paper - perfect! 

and here is my finished g45ish card!
the "stamped" image is on foam tape. 

I hope you can find some time to create this weekend, save yourself the stampede at the craft store and use what you've got!!
Thanks for stopping by!
