"Though she be but little she is fierce"

This describes quite a few women I know (in a good way),  and it seems the smaller they are, the fiercer.  And the more they have had to deal with in life, the fiercer they are.  They survive and flourish.  They may be small but are larger than life when it counts.

I bought this stamp set because I liked the sentiment. I liked this fiery paper for the background, stamped the cat mask and heat embossed in black. Stamped and heat embossed the sentiment in gold.  Munched the corners with a die and then tore bits off. Added sequins, because all these women sparkle.

Mask stamp: Kaisercraft
Sentiment stamp Kaisercraft
Diecut corners: Sizzix

I just love how you die cut and tore the edges of your panel - it is the perfect finishing touch for that pretty patterned paper! The sentiment is great too - I can see why you bought it. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! Jill
