LOC Dressing Up

I came across this amazing Blog and found the cutest challenge and could not resist playing along !  Margaret from Alice & Camilla has invited us to play along with her
'Dress Up'  challenge!  Anyone can play and she is aiming to complete a dress by the end of each month. How adorable is that - it appeals to the 'little girl' in all of us!! 

I used this template from Gini Owen and of course had to use the Layers of Color art stamp set - Merci Bouquet, the small flowers are perfect for this darling dress!  They have been coloured lightly with SU Chalks and had Kindy Glitz added to the centers.

For the bodice I used some leftover embossed CS, using Divine Swirls embossing folder!  I have sponged around the edges (LIGHTLY) of  the whole dress, it helped define the lines,  I also used some spotted chiffon ribbon as a belt and knotted it through a pearl buckle/slider

How cute is this - it is perfect for my DD2's birthday next month - she is my 'girly girl' and saw it on my desk this morning and cried out with delight 'Awww Mum - this is adorable!!'  She is my greatest encouragement, God bless her!!  I will be back tomorrow with another one to show you, it is very vintage - I am having fun with these!! LOL!

I am linking this to:
and will be back tomorrow to link it to more - it is after midnight here....ZZZzzzz! LOL!

Thank you for coming by and for all the lovely comments you leave me - I am a 'comment junky' and they make my day!  I hope your day is one of your GREAT ones!  God bless you!!
