Baby dress card

I really didn't have time to stamp this morning, but I needed to, so I made this little dress card for the VSN prechallenge. I created the pattern last week, but have been just too busy with other things, so I haven't done much stamping at all this past week. The fold is at the top. On the skirt part of the dress, I stamped a small flower from fabulous flowers, using the rock 'n roll technique. Then I used a stamp with two tiny butterflies to fill in all over the remainder of the dress. The collar is made using the scalloped circle punch and a 1-1/4" circle punch, a bit of sponging and pink liquid pearls. The bottom of the dress is trimmed with wave scissors. The skirt overlay is made of vellum. I wanted it to look gathered, which was very hard to do, because vellum is so brittle, it was hard to keep it from tearing. Then I wrapped wide white organdy around the waist and tied it in a knot. I really like how this turned out.

stamps: fabulous flowers, butterflies (don't know what set) (SU)
ink: pretty in pink, regal rose
paper: whisper white, vellum
other: sponge, scallop circle punch, 1-1/4" circle punch, pink liquid pearls, wide white organdy ribbon, sticky strip, wave scissors

I'm so glad you stopped by.

Oh, I LOVE this card! It's so beautiful! I'm expecting my first grandchild any day now and we don't know if it's a boy or a girl, but if it's a girl, I'd love to make this! Are you sharing the template/pattern??

I live in the Chicago area, and I know just what you mean about the snow - enough already!
