Marilyn perhaps?

Are you ready for another look at a new stamp set? This one tickled me pink - pun intended! This set is called Mama Wants!

This classy lady reminded my of Marilyn Monroe, thus I gave her the blonde hair! Snort! She's colored up with Copic's, stardust pens and a white gel pen.

Designer paper is Rustic Chic from The Angel Company. Black satin ribbon is tied with the Bow Easy and the three pearls are from Kaisercraft.

While making the bow, I grabbed the first roll of satin ribbon that I found in my stash. Big yuk! It's so flimsy that it wouldn't make a decent bow for anything and it was the expensive stuff, too! So, I pulled out my Ribbons and Bows Oh My black satin and tied one up smoothly. I think I got this one on sale for cheap too! I just got a chuckle out of this, because my husband is always telling me "you get what you pay for." Well, in this case, No.

Thanks for stopping by!
