TPS Dressmaker card


Good morning or evening and thank you so much for dropping in.

I am a guest designer over at The Paper Shelter blog again and this week the challenge is everybody's favourite - "Anything goes". I am so thrilled to be designing for The Paper Shelter, they have the most gorgeous digi stamps ever!! Isn't this little dressmaker such a sweetie? As you can see she totally inspired this card by me making a "dressmaking" studio with 2 chipboard dress forms behind her. I heat-embossed them and the lace up chipboard in silver. The "dresses" are just different laces and ribbons glued on.

I couldn't believe my luck when I found my mini buttons while I was making this card! I had been searching for them for over a year and just when I needed them most they popped out of my stash (almost a shop hubby calls it lol). I only just added the non-adhesive red pearl "necklace" when I took these photos, the glue has now dried clear. I have some close ups so you can see how the card works from the side view.





Flourish with a Bling is now retail so please check out our website, we have some amazing value packs. We sell worldwide.

I hope you'll join in the fun at The Paper Shelter with their Anything goes challenge.
