A dress for any occassion

HI All! 

Sorry I didn't come up with anything catchy today......I just don't have it in  me.....lol!!!  But hey - I do have some eye candy for you......  I was able to squeak out a little beauty this morning, but didn't have time to photograph, edit or post it then.....so here I am rushing before swimming lessons and after switching laundry loads.  Anyone have an extra maid on hand that I could use.....I think I could get soem more stampin' done if everyoen around here didn't want to eat or have clean clothes....how anoying....right????

Anyway - I started with the Mojo Monday sketch. 

This ended up TOTALLY different than what I had in my little mind.  I started out flowers, concord crush and the like.....but ended up here instead:

How did I do?

I have been wanting to dress up that little dress form from the sew suite collection for quite sometime now...."sew" I decided to dress up three of them. hehe!!  Get it??  Sew.....so.....sew.......so......
I'm grasping at straws for humor here, huh?  lol!

The card base is cherry cobbler - {luv} it!  The desigenr series paper is from newsprint and love letters.  Did you get a look at that upper corner?????  Well......the words "Stampin' Up!" was printed in that corner......argh!!!!....So i ripped the corner off, rolled the designer series paper and adhered a scrap of newsprint behind it.  I did that same technique on two different places on the main image panel to kinda balance it out.  See?

All the destressed edges were inked with the tea stain ink pad in the ditressing kit....please Stampin' Up!, sell ink refills for these babies....pretty please.......

Oh....my dresses!!!!

I dressed up each of my ladies with their own style.....wanna see?

A simple rhinestone, a punched flower from thebitty punch pack accented with a rhinestone and a lace skirt with a rhinestone waist.  That is a great use for your victoria lace ribbon scraps!!!!  oh - one more thing I just realized in this picture......I also stamped the french filligree stamp on this panel with sahara sand that had been stamped off.  lol

I could really use some love today....what do you think of this baby?

What a sweet card! I loved how you added the rolled designer paper. Thanks for sharing the inspiration behind that. it's nice to know I'm not the only one who has "goofs". I loved how you decorated the dress frames - brilliant use of lace. Very pretty!!

That is really pretty, I wasn't sure what I would do with that set when I seen it, but this is gorgeous.
