Dress Form card with Crepe Flower

Here is my latest design for BBTB2. The challenge was to use the dress form from the Forever Young cartridge. I made a 6x6 card from lavender cardstock, layered with black cardstock and a striped cardstock that I border punched. I added the lavendar polka dotted arch behind the dress form. The dress form is cut from a piece of pink flocked cardstock and the base is cut from black cardstock. I added strips of sheer black ribbon, a rhinestone belt, and a fine silver strand tassel. I attached it to the card with foam dots. I attached pink twine to the back of the "fun" sticker and attached it to the card with a foam dot. I added a sheer pink ribbon along the left side and a chipboard flourish. I created the flower from crepe paper and layered paper flowers with a rhinestone in the middle. I then added glitter glue to sparkle it up. To finish it up, I added purple twine bows to the corners. See the other designs at BBTB2.

Miles of Smiles,

What a great idea to use the ribbon hanging down like that. I'll have to file that one away for future reference. Wonderful card.
