Beautiful and Amazing:

Good morning all!  Here we are at Wednesday again.  Only a few short days until the weekend.

This week's inspiration photo challenge at Papercraft Star is:

My inspiration:  colours, dress, flowers, shabby, lace

I made this card for a strong yet elegant woman.  So I wanted to keep it simple yet fussy at the same time (is that even a thing??)  I am pleased as punch with how it turned out and I hope she likes it too!

I also used my own dress template for this card, didn't think I would really use it again, but am so happy I kept it!

Card Ingredients:  JustRite A New Day and Just the Right Words stamps, Tim Holtz Old Paper ink, CraftSmart Gold ink, DCWC cardstock, KaiserCraft Magnolia Grove papers, Celebrate It ribbon, Hero Arts lace, Recollections pearls, American Crafts jute, random charms.   Tools:  sewing machine, Lattice Pendant Shapeabilities, Oval Nesties,

I made this card for the following challenges: Cupcake Craft - sentimental, Path of Positivity - strength, Card Crafter's Circle - stitches, Creative Card Crew - metal, JustRite Friday Challenge - sketch:

Love the elegance of this card and the dress pattern looks like a die! Beautiful card.

Hello Deanne,

This is such a pretty piece of work. The dress image is lovely (I myself never know what to do with these kinds of images), the quote beautiful and the choice and way you have added the embellishments all come together to create a wonderful design. I also appreciate that you took the time to leave a comment, letting me know how your project connects with the concept of strength. Thank you so much for joining this month on the Path of Positivity. I'm so glad that you found my challenge and I hope that I will see more of your lovely creations in the future.

May you always be surrounded by strong, fabulous women!
