Shabby Dress Card

I have one more post for today. I took inspiration for this card from adorable photo at the Shabby Tea Room. I also added green for the Pink Elephant and Heart2Heart challenges for this week. The sketch is a really cool sketch from Mojo Monday. I spent a lot of time making this card, so I hope you all like it. I really like the outcome.

Here is a close up on the dress. I cut it out using the Artiste Cricut cartridge:

I also cut out the dress form and the doily circle, the little flowers and the leaves with Artiste. Here is a close up on the bow:

I stamped "Happy Spring" using the selective inking technique to take off the little bunny. I tied the button onto the bow using Baby Pink Embroidery Floss.

Here is a close-up on the butterflies. The big one is from the Bliss level 2 assortment:

Here is one more view of the card, but it is kinda fuzzy. But you can see how sparkly it is in this picture:

This is my first time combining pink and green and I really like the combo. Thanks for stopping by, and I appreciate your comments!
