Ooh La La

    The dressform from Signature Series is one of my favorites.  However, I don't seem to utilize it as much as I should. I fancied it up a bit by stamping a leaf flourish and adding a gathered ribbon skirt.  I had this pattern paper in my stash and felt it complemented the dressform.  Since I haven't been using the stitched frame die (fogot what it's named)  too much I decided to use it for the sentiment.

Two up close shots of the details.

I think the black edging lends a little vintage flair to the card.

 I really liked the way this card turned out. I hope my neice liked it. Thanks for stopping by.

This is beautiful. I, too, love that dress frame, and don't use it enough. Great inspiration. I also totally forgot about that little stitched die. It's perfect for this card.

I like how you fancied up the dress with that ruffled ribbon. It's so pretty. The color combo is so elegant, love the stitching too. Great card!
