I'm late to the party!! This challenge was a couple of weeks ago, but I didn't have any appropriate stamps on hand ... so I HAD to go shopping :)
Here is a card for the Teapotter's Challenge (MMTPT210) - for Laura Triem. Laura was in a tragic accident late last year and is working hard on her recovery. The "Teapotters" Challenge was to make a girly-girl card for Laura and send messages of encouragement.
I found this digital image at Clear Dollar Stamps and thought Laura would like this "tres chic" french gown.
The image was printed onto a white card front and then paper-pieced with vellum over top. It is so pretty in real life, but I just couldn't capture the interest from the vellum layer with my camera.

Using the vellum sounds so cool! I sure wish we could see it, but the important thing is that Laura will and I am sure it will make her smile! It is a VERY pretty CAS card just as I see it!!! So clean and crisp! Wonderful Loll!!!

Ooh la la! Such a lovely slinky dress. I'm sucking in my belly just thinking about trying to slither into it. LOL! Great choice and I'm sure Laura will love it. And, hey, yours will stand out because it didn't arrive with all the others. :)

Loll, you're a sweetheart to think of Laura and create a card for her. This is just so pretty. I wish I could show all of you the photo's of Laura in her evening wear during those cruises - she's so lovely - and extremely tall. When she was a little girl she and her cousins would always measure their height to me when they would see me. Because I'm short (4'11") it didn't take them long to catch up (which delighted them). Thank you again Loll for playing along. Laura will love this card. She's been trying to send thank-you's so hope she'll be able to get one out to you.

Wow.....Loll....so Chic, Elegant and beautifully CAS. I am sure Laura will be thrilled with her very special card. I cannot see the vellum, but I bet it gives the gown a chiffon look and was a creative idea. TFS
