crankbunny tattoo cards


I’ll be honest, I’m having a hard time focusing today because all I can think about is last night’s Golden Globe Awards. All those green sequins? It was like a beautiful, shimmering ocean of glitter, and I still can’t get that color out of my mind. GREEN. SEQUINS. (If you come back in a few weeks and find D*S suddenly looks like a green sequined dress, you’ll know why.) The only thing distracting me from dresses this morning is a cute series of cards from Crankbunny at Etsy. I know tattoos aren’t for everyone, but if you’re inclined toward the more permanent ink arts, these cards and paper dolls are for you. I love the Victorian feel and think they’d be perfect for a non-traditional Valentine’s Day card or just a little hello for your tattooed sweetie.

    I just love watching the red carpet for award shows. It is the SUPER girl in me but I love clothes. Not so much the money and time it takes to look that beautiful but I like to look, observe the beautiful fabric. The artistic way the designer got the dress bodice to cinch and the way the material lays across, almost floating in some.
