Sew Lovely 2S4Y

Edit: So happy to say that my card made the top 10 over at 2s4y!  Thank you so much for chosing my card!!  I am so excited!

I thought I would sit down to create something today during nap time and immediately found the new sketch on 2 Sketches 4 You!  Love it this week!  Here is today's sketch....



I instantly thought of Lawn Fawn for some reason and I just had to use the dress form from Sew Lovely!


I used the flowers from the same set to make my own background paper!  Since I am Copically challenged this week I pulled out my Prismas and OMS to color!  I also made my own ribbon ruffle!  I took 1 inch white grosgrain, stitched down the middle and pulled the thread through until I had a nice affect!  Super easy!


The colors in my photo didn't turn out right!  IRL the dress, buttons and background paper are a perfect match!  Other than that, I thought it turned out to be a pretty fun card!  I would love to hear what you think! 

OH and I added the blog "Follower" tab on the side bar!  I would love to check out your blog!  If you would like to become a "follower" I can come and check your blog out too!
