Vintage Dress Form

It's the first Tuesday in the month and The Crafty Pad girls would normally have a new release for you today, but instead, we thought it might be nice to revisit some of the older images.  I chose my all time favourite - DRESS FORM TRIO - I just love this image and if you follow my blog you will probably have seen it a few times now.  This is my card:

This image really suits the vintage look so I chose some papers from the Hot Off The Press Nonna's Garden paper pack and inked the edges with Old Paper distress ink.  I cut the lace strip with a Martha Stewart edge punch and the flowers were made with Punch Bunch flower punches. Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

I decorated the inside of my card with the same papers and then added a doily and a die cut circle:

Card Recipe:

Papers: Hot Off The Press - Nonna's Garden
Card Stock: Crafter's Companion - Core'dinations
Tools: Martha Stewart - Edge Punch, Punch Bunch - Flower Punches,
Spellbinders - Standard Circle Die

Dang girl! This is really beautiful! I'm not usually drawn to dress forms LOL! (I hate sewing) but this image is wonderful, and you created a piece of art with it!! I like your choice of DP, the sculpted flowers using the same papers and what you have done on the inside!
Well done Pauline! Glad you joined and good luck on the challenge at Craft Your Passion...
