3 Times a Lady :-)

When I saw the theme on the Stamping for the Weekend Challenge I knew which stamp I HAD to use !! :-) I love these 3 'ladies' ;-) They have given us 3 song titles to choose from and I chose 3 Times a Lady by the Commodores :-)

I used my PB Sensations stamp, coloured the images with copics and 3D'd them. I used my copics gold spica glitter pen on the sheep's earrings, liquid pearls to the pig's necklace and gave the cow some diamond ear studs :-)
The swirly paper is from Papermania,,, I inked the edges of everything with distress ink. I used my new Martha Steward punch to make a fancy edge and added ribbon n flowers, a charm and gems to finish :-)

The sentiment is from Simon Says Clear Stamps SIMPLY THE BEST SENTIMENTS Exclusive Set. the stamp actually says friends forever but that made it too big so I masked the 'forever' ! :-)

I followed Lyndsey's fab sketch on the Charisma Cardz Challenge
I am also entering it for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge ;-) I know I should have used more swirls,,, and I did try to put some on but they just didn't work so am afraid the swirly paper is all I could do :-/

Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)
