Arrow IC52 - Anniversary Dress

Inspiration Challenge 52 - Formal Dress

Since this is the Anniversary challenge, I thought it should be a ball - hence the lovely dress! This beauty was found on Nordstrom's website.

Get brownie points for making your card an anniversary card!!
Sorry, points are non transferable and unuseable.

My sample: Blue Frills.

Don't forget, to check out the trivia challenge!!

There are no rules, so let your creative juices run wild -- be *inspired* and go get stamping!

REMINDER: Please put IC52 in the keywords box when you upload your card (no space b/n IC and the challenge number) . If you have more than one keyword use a comma to separate them. Thanks!

View Submissions

Don't forget about No Upload Sunday - Let's give the gallery moderators a day off and not upload on Sunday (unless, of course, you are a Fan Club member - yet another reason to spend a little money on your favorite site). Thank you.

This was a great challenge. I really loved the colors in the dress, and knew right away what I wanted to do. I love the green peeking below the blue, and the sparkly flowers. Here is my card... http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...15823&cat=6648

Had to take a break from doing Christmas cards to do this challenge!
This was my first try at dry embossing on vellum. I really like the effect.

Here is my take on this challenge. Don't remember where I got the corner stamps. I stamped the background with fine lace, I really love that stamp.

Thanks Karen for the great inspiration.

I have mine done, but I'm sharing my computer with DH now so it took a while to upload, then SCS decided not to cooperate for a while.

Here's my card

I was truly inspired by the colours, the long sleek line of the dress and the elegance of the dress. With all of this in mind, I came up with this card.
