Mona Lize

I pretty much bought this stamp set with the Mona Lisa image so that I could make a card for my niece, Lize. She has a special connection to this painting, and it’s kind of a family inside joke.

The sketch I used was Viva la Verve‘s first one of March. The card ended up a bigger size than I usually make, about 5-1/2″ x 7″, due to the large image. I used the little dots that were created by the alignment holes in the A Cut Above die to make the sentiment tag look like a thought bubble.

Thanks for stopping by!
