I was sent these elegant dresses by my punchie pal, coffeestamper, a/k/a Sue. Too bad I didn't get this card ready b/f the Oscars. I'm sure Jennifer Lawrence would have looked "fab" in one of them even though the evening was neutrals and royal blues. If you're "fabulous" you can wear whatever you want!
I cut them out and was going to use the red one; but, I happened to lay them both down and when I looked at them, I knew I had to use the pink with the red. I popped up the dresses on dimensionals. It took 4-ever to get this card right and I don't even know how it came together.
Sue's b/day is this month, so I used these dresses and the tulle she sent me. I sparkled up the tops of the dresses and placed circular pearls at the waists. I added tiny gold beads to the bottom of the dresses to add some glam.
I used a border punch for the sentiment and added a row of tiny gold pearls. From there, I added a velvet flowered ribbon with tiny gold pearls in each center. Embossed the white b/g, border punched it, added flower with bead center and some fancy flourishes.
That's about it. I know these dresses would have been a hit on Oscar night; but, maybe next year!!
This also qualifies for the Dirty Dozen challene to make it special and sparkle!
Thanks for taking a look and have a great day!

YOU are fabulous, Pamzi, in every way! But this card is just lovely- Oscar worthy indeed. I expect Oscar de la Renta will be calling you up anytime now to design his spring line of " frocks". Really, it is lovely! Not too revealing of a dress, trendy in the red and pink. I'm just so glad that you put the tulle over the bodice - let's not get too revealing now! Those gold pearls are just fab - better than an Oscar itself!

Wow! You worked magic with Sue's dresses and what a gorgeous bow you made with the tulle. Sue will be very pleased. Those dresses, I'm sure, look better than some at the Oscars. You really got all sophisticated with this creation and I love it.

Well, maybe you were confused when you started, but it sure came out GREAT, PAMZI!! whodda thunk we would both be meeting here in the favorites this week?
LOVE these elegantly designed gowns, just a bit too late for the Oscars but definitely worthy of being there.Beautiful card with the pearled flowers, the tulle and the fancy flourishes - Definitely a first place winner!!

Well, whoever is on the receiving end will be one blessed lady for sure, Pam! I don't know what you have in mind or who, but this will certainly be a pleaser! I love what you did with the tulle, and the bow is gorgeous, well, so are those to die for dresses too! The pearls, sparkle, ribbon and pretty flower all add up to one Hott card, you're so good~
