Dress Form Card

This is not a recent card but it sold recently and I found myself studying it. Why is it special? It's one of my first attempts to design on my own. I'm forever borrowing inspiration from others and I really wanted to see what happened if I worked out of my head. Now, I did gather a few ideas from here and there but, for the most part, this is mine.

I found this dress form stamp at Stamp Antonio in San Antonio, TX. Love that store! The papers are by K and Company.


I used a six petal punch to make these roses. I learned how from a tutorial posted by GabrielleP over at My Creative Scrapbook. I think. If I find the link, I'll come back and post it! The sparkle is from Glimmer Mist. The charm is from The Girl's Paperie. I used glossy accents to attach the trim, roses, and twine.
