Time to Kick Your Heels Off!

A friend at work asked me to make a birthday card for her sister who is a fashion DIVA!  I knew I had the perfect stamp from Dina Wakley's Silhouette Women set.  The papers are from Kioshi Paper Pad/Basic Grey.
I wanted to give the image a little 'wow' factor - so decided to stamp the image again, cut out the skirt piece and add layers of ribbon and lace to it, tying some wrinkled seam tape around the waste.
I layered it over the original stamping with foam dots.
I printed the sentiment from my computer and die cut it with Stitched Speech Bubble from Pretty Pink Posh.  I added these sweet Wood Veneer Stars from Studio Calico and popped the sentiment up on foam dots.
Here you can see all the dimensional layering.  I added another little star on the inside above the sentiment, a little unexpected surprise for the receiver!.
I'm entering my card in the following challenges:
Splitcoast Stampers Color Challenge - Soft Sky, Pacific Point, Wild Wasabi, Crumb Cake 
(I used all the colors on the skirt!)

I adore this - what a fabulous decorative skirt you've given her! The colours are so clean and pretty too. Just lovely.

Love the new blog header too (though I'm aware it's probably not new any more...)
