Little Black Dress

Well, I think I might have a new "all-time favorite" card.  The challenge this week over at Heart2Heart is "Little Black Dress" and I had more ideas than I could execute.  Here's the one I settled on (which I LOVE!):

Everything is current CTMH and comes from the For Always paper pack coordinating products.  The sentiment is actually a sticker mounted on foam tape.  I sewed the ruffles onto the cardstock to keep them secure.  There is a black grosgrain ribbon across the top of the fabric and a bow behind the sentiment which isn't showing up well in the picture.  A couple of corsage pins, and it's done. 

One of the hot trends for 2014 is "Conflicting Statements."  I love the classic black and white, the clean square along the top, and then the frilly ruffles along the bottom. new favorite.

Until next time,


  1. So glad to see ideas with the "For Always" fabric, which is just sitting on my shelf, gathering dust... I love your sassy little card! Elegant and flirty at the same time. I'm not surprised you're in love ;)

  2. FABULOUS! You really rocked it as our GuestDesigner at H2H with your first submission. I love your ruffled dress. Thanks for giving me yet another wonderful idea.
