Hi Dreamers!
Today, we will take a trip back in time to the 1950's with with fun new stamp from Lost Coast Design called 50's Girl!  I had fun with this new stamp and made two projects.  I will share the Pink and Turquoise version today and tomorrow the Red gingham version.  As we all know, turquoise was "the" color in the of course I had to incorporate that color into my design.

Stamps: 50's Girl Circle Frame (used for the background), and Party Words, all from Lost Coast Designs
CS: Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White, and Pixie Pink from Stampin' Up; Glossy Black; Solar White Neenah
Inks: Tempting Turquoise (SU);Versafine Black Onyx
