PDCC92 Let's Celebrate!

Another View.


How are you doing on this beautiful Sunday?  Hope you are enjoying your weekend! 
Just wanted to share with you a card I made for the The Play Date Cafe.  The challenge colors this week are so lovely!  I was inspired by the gorgeous dress in the photo.  I wanted some dimension on the skirt and needed to find the right color.  I came across a flower that I tore apart and put it around the dress form.  The dress form looked bare on top until I place a piece of wide gold ribbon and added pearls.  I distressed the card base with worn lipsitck. And antique linen was added to the dress form.  Well, I better make this short because it's dinner time.  Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Take care and have a wonderful week, hugs!:-))
