FASHION SUSPENSE

I made this for the FanClub central theme and Monday's Technique Challenge - to make a suspension card. I wanted the dress to look like it was hanging on a line! I paper pieced the dress.. same image is on the back. After I stamped the dress, I just held it up to the window and drew the outline of the image on the reverse side o that it would match the front. Wishing I had some of those Marvy Mega punches or something cause I just had to use my dinosaur-aged oval template to trace and cut out all of those layers - phew! Love how this turned out. It is for a friend who is having a birthday soon. Sentiment is stamped on the inside.Thanks for looking!

I see you have a cuttlebug. Now you need oval nestabilities to cut your ovals out. Makes life so much easier. Wish for them.

Very pretty card and dress. Thanks for stopping by my blog today.
