Coco Chanel

"Ink it Up Finally..." Challenge 44:  Use It Tuesday challenges us to find and use an uninked stamp -- Ho Ho -- that's an easy one for me!!  I have shelves and drawers full and could create endless projects if I didn't have to do the laundry once in awhile.
I adore this Paula Best Coco Chanel image/quote that was obtained at a stamp convention about four years ago.  "Nature gives you the face you have a twenty it is up to you to merit the face you have at fifty."  The backdrop is stitched with my DGD's Bernette sewing machine from scraps on my workbench, the medallion issues from the same scraps.  More "Use it" Stuff -- surely five years ago, I made a flock or swarm (?) of these dragonflies with a PSX stamp, embossing powder, and aluminum from a soda can.  They were just "refound" and provided a perfect accent for this card. Wishing for you a face that you merit at 50 (ala Coco Chanel).
