favorite dress *flying unicorn*

Followed a sketch by Sketchabilities. Papers from Chantilly Dawn by Riddersholm, available at Flying Unicorn.

A little tearing technique. The trim was just random piece laying on my table that I decided to stuff in this space.

The splotches are rub ons by BoBunny. The small roses are from Flying Unicorn. This LO is about my favorite dress from when I was a little girl. I was 6 yrs old in the photo.

That mold piece is by Melissa Frances and the postage stamp is from Authentique, both available at Flying Unicorn. The bird was stamped (The Girls Paperie) and fussy cut. Border punch by Martha Stewart.

Flower vine by Stephanie and the carnation was made by my sister Vivian. Hopefully, Vivian will start a blog for us someday! The bling is by Zva, available at Flying Unicorn. I cut it up and rearranged to fit out my flowers.

This flower is called Alissa, by BoBunny :) I used a masking technique that I learned from Frank. These flowers and glimmer mist are also available at Flying Unicorn.

The flower at the top was made by Stephanie. The one on the bottom is another by Vivian.

The little purple rose is from Flying Unicorn. The vine is by Stephanie. The butterfly is by Making Memories.
