Dress to impress

Hi bloggers

It's time for the weekend, a chance for most of you to chill and craft , well that's what I'll be doing lol 

I received some free dies out of a magazine tattered lace.   Ones called over the edge border and the other floral, both tattered lace dies. 
I just love tattered lace!

Of course I wanted to play, as you do when you get new crafty stuff lol.  

I made an 8 by 8 large card using A4 card.  The image is from hunkydory little pads called Little book of dresses and I just love these images. There's so many duplicates too so you can decoupage to create dimension.

I matted and layered her using hunkydory patterned papers and card from paws for thought, some beautiful papers in this kit. 
I then used some gorgeous lace around the edges which I picked up from 'The works' for a pound. I stuck some gems which were from Poundland and there's quite a few of them , a bargain.

I then used the die cuts from the new tattered lace dies buy from here with a great price and stuck around the card.
The sentiment was from hunkydory kit too. 

Bows handmade using some brown ribbon I had in my stash. 

Thanks for looking really appreciate it.

Have a lovely weekend, wrap up warm it's going to be cold Bbbrrrrrr

  1. This looks like something from the Downton Abbey ladies! It's so vintage, the colors along with the fab lady - and all the little laces, dies and jewels you've added to make it so special. I love Tattered Lace dies too, and you've certainly used these freebies (WOW!) to maximum effect on this beautiful card. TFS
