Memory box art deco roses birthday wishes

I always think it must have been a bit of a magical era especially where fashion was concerned in making the girls and ladies who wore it feel so glamorous ,elegant and girly, how times and fashion changes, although certain elements do seem to reappear all be it tweaked for re-invention.   I do love the idea of the glam dresses and hats but I also think the languid fashions called for long lanky stick insect bodies, something I most definitely have never had and no amount of dieting will ever aid me to achieve and be healthy either lol.
My niece must also share this love of the the period and fashion as she buys many cards with the elegant ladies adorning the fronts. She has a birthday soon so I had a rumage through my stash to see what I could come up with and saw this fab memory box corner die which I thought would be perfect.

Mackintosh roses in abundance I cut them in black glossy card and backed them with red mirri card. I cut 4 and formed a frame on a white base square card.

The central image and alphabet stamps are from the stamp man aspects of design and are among some of my first bought rubber stamps. I stamped in black versafine and fussy cut them all out. I finished my lady with some liquid enamel earings and promarker red lipstick.

Quite a simple design but I think quite striking too.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

simply create too - black white and one other colour

creatalicious - anything goes optional celebrate

cards in envy - frame it

always using rubber - it's not all black and white

morgans art world -anything goes

that's crafty - all of a sparkle
