A New Dress

Hi there
I know I have shared cards made using the wonderful cd Fabulous Fashion but I just love it!
This is a card I put together in parts really
I started by cutting out the decoupage and building it up, the topper then got left on my other desk until one day I went to get a paper pad and decided to have another go with it
So I found some backing paper that had the same sort of colours as the dress only problem was my topper needed an A5 card at least and the paper was 6x6
Luckily I had 2 sheets of it so used a sheet of A4 cream card to make my A5 card blank
Then I trimmed the candy striped paper down to fit and made sure both matched when I stuck them down with double sided tape
Another brick wall – so the card got relegated again to the other desk
After a few days I picked the card up again and decided a glittered wavy peel off may just work to disguise the join of the 2 papers – it worked quite well – in fact better than I imagined it would.
So while I had the peel offs out I used a fine silver wavy border all around the edge of the backing paper with small ornate peel off corners.
So far so good
Don't know why but I just couldn't find a sentiment to suit the card
I didn't even know what event to make this for so again it went to the other desk
While having a clear up I knocked over a box of sentiments and there it was – the pretty flower shaped foiled sentiment!!!
It wasn't the right colour but that's what distress ink pads are for so I easily coloured it to match the card, as in shaded lilac around the edges and Victorian velvet in the centre.
To decorate the card I used my Cosmic Shimmer coloured PVA glues – it was the lovely purple I went with and dropped a blob in each of the segments of the sentiment and then I added a smaller blob to the centre of the flowers on the dress
And that my friends is another lovely and fully usable card – its perfect for any occasion don't you think?
See you again tomorrow
