Do to limitations, I changed up a few things, but kept the basic theme. I didn't have any beautiful rouched ribbon, but used a nicely textured silk ribbon instead over which I wound twine. The Dress Form die cut is one of many beautiful ones that Petaloo launched at CHAW this year. The die cut is on 7 Gypsies paper from the Venice paper pad, embossed with a Sizzix folder and lightly sanded. The ink is one of the 12 new Memento colors from Tsukineko called Espresso Truffle. It is a rich brown and has quickly become one of my favorites.
The buttons were a gift from Moonrise and MarilynnPreston. Thanks ladies!
Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Please elaborate. I l-o-v-e your card, particularly the dress form. However, I have never heard of CHAW before, and when I did a search I came up empty-handed. I would really appreciate more information! :-)

The dress form - as you did it - is awesome. The embossed panel behind it is just marvelous. All your dp is beautiful and what a lovely chair backdrop you have. The total picture sure made me glad you had time today!!
