Formal Occasion Dress

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

It has been awhile since I have posted, but I found a little time to work on a shabby chic card. Inspired by the photo inspiration challenge at The Shabby Tea Room, this is the results.
Card is 5" x 6 1/2" using some pretty K&Company papers and other papers from my scrap stash.

Cricut Cartridge is Formal Occasion. The dress is on page 27. I trimmed some pretty areas off a wider piece of lace and added it to make the fancy dress. Small pearls complete the dress. A leftover piece of the lace is used in the lower left corner of the card. Dress is pop-dotted on the script mat.
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Label 10 is used for the scrip paper mat which is pop-dotted on the card.
Spellbinders Eyelet Circles is used for the sentiment mat.
Just Rite Dare to Dream set - sentiment - Dare to Dream
Just Rite Custom Dies- Corners at the top of card. Yes, I hid the right corner with the sentiment..could not find a place to put that mat!!
Recollections floral embellishments accent the pretty papers. I like to make my flowers using the Cricut machine but these bought flowers seemed to be a good choice today.
A crinkled ribbon bow and a Wimpole Street Creations fabric doily complete the look. I discovered a bag of these doilies that I had purchased many years ago from a fabric shop at a very good discount price. Thought it was time to use one!
