LOC Vintage Rose

I was so inspired by this amazing Blog and found the cutest challenge from Margaret from Alice & Camilla I could not resist making another dress (and will probably definitely do more! LOL) How adorable are they, it is like playing 'dress ups' but in a more 'grown up' way! LOL

Once again I have used Layers of Color images, this time using the Vintage Rose art stamp set.  I have stamped the roses directly onto the DP with Distressing Ink to create a soft floral look.

I added some recycled lace around the neckline and secured it with a gorgerous rose, that was part of a Blog Candy I love these gorgeous little roses and use them sparingly.  Cream chiffon ribbon is tied in a bow around the waist!  This is wrapped around the front of the card, so that the card can still open - a seperate piece is added sround the waist of the back of the card!

You can see how the roses are not bold but soft and subtle with the Distressing ink, this is just perfect for the look I am hoping to achieve!

I added a strip of ribbon around the back of the card as well, along with some pink lace around the hem!  This is actually a card that opens, being joined at the shoulder seams.  I added a small strip of ribbon to the inside of each should to strengthen them - just incase! 

I am hoping to make a few of these as we are goign to have a stall at the Local Homestead Markets agin next month and I am thinking these would be perfect for Mother's Day - what do you think!?!?  It will be fun making them all different in some way - I am sure you will get to see them!!  If you are interested you can find the template here at Gina Owen's Blog.
