Stampsmith DT - Bring out the star in you!

Well here's Marilyn who was definitely a star.   The background paper is Webster's Pages with flowers from Prima.  The cardstock and the flowers have been edged with Golden Rod Stickles.  Although I swore I would never own anything Magnolia the tag is one of their DooHickey dies (what a name! LOL) and it's very cute.

Ooh, gorgeous, Carol. Love the white theme and I have to admit that the tag is lovely - despite vowing the same as you did - I'm tempted, lol. Love the pearls - a lovely finishing touch, giving the feel of Hollywood and lavishness.

Sold your soul to Magnolia heeyyyyyy lol....it'll be peel offs on the corners next before we can say Doo-Hicky-Die-Die.

lol... other than that moment of madness(just joshing lol), a very Carol style collection of gorgeousness. That has to be one of my favourite Stampsmith stamps.
