It's my turn to host the WTUI challenge this week - and while it's not necessarily a Christmas challenge at all, this is what I ended up with . You'll be able to find the challenge HERE - and then you'll see why I made this particular card.
I use the TH die to cute my dress form from cream card, and created the dress mostly using Concord & Ninth's Take a Bough, though I did also add in a couple of different sprigs from a Sizzix set and a magazine freebie. I used red satin ribbon for a belt and narrower ribbon to tie the sash, adding in some eyelash fibre and a beaded spray I found in my stash. The shoulder straps are just very narrow strips of the breen.
Looking though my larger DP (the dress form is a big die) I came up with this old Basic Grey paper - I aged it up a bit more by stamping with Weathered in Vintage Photo. Stamped and embossed the sentiment in black. I used some wood DP for the floor, and then matted the piece onto matt silver and a brown base.
It still needed something to balance it - in the end I added this butterfly from my dwindling supply of pre-stamped and coloured ones, as the colours were good for Christmas. I added Stickels all round the wings, and some copper wire antennae.

absolutely fantastic! Everything about this is perfect, Sabrina. When I was looking at the pictures in the thread and came upon the actual window with the dress...if was a definite, that's the one! Not sure I can come close to your though. And that BG paper...I do have some of that. I love, love this! A definite Sabrina FAV
