Never seeing her own life to wonder why

Well, its been a very very hot weekend here, over 100 degress for a number of days. We went swimming in the pool, where the water was like bathwater so liked staying  the AC in my studio (ie craft room) better. Did get alot done including this Design Team Piece for 100 Proof Press. The little door hinge stamp told me to make a door and then I spied some wood grain paper in my stash and I was off.

The lovely lady image is from the Graphics fairy, one of my favorite sites, I layered her under Artchix Gothic Arches transparency. Put her on some vintage music paper and added shiny copper german scrap. My favorite part is the door handle where I used a black ornate button from my button obsession...oh I mean collection. The sentiment "Never seeing her own life to wonder why" and some Ranger copper dimensional pearls completed my little card.

Hope this week you will take time to wonder why.
take care, gerri
