Party Frock

Hello folks...

Another fortnight has passed which means it's time for another challenge at:

This week we have some marvellous sponsorship from two companies:

A Day For daisies are offering a shop voucher as one prize...
Sassy Studio designs are offering a prize of 4 digis from their shop. So pop over to Simply Papercraft and join in the fun. Our 'anything goes ' challenges are so easy to play along with!

I decided to use one of the A Day For Daisies wonderful digital images 'Hepbern Dress' and produced this:

What a gorgeous image to work with! I knew straight away she would be perfect to paper-piece and I used a cherry red polka dot patterned paper from Papermania's Spots and Stripes Capsule Collection which really pops out. I've had these papers since Christmas and just opened the packet - typical card-maker! The hair and skin were coloured with pro-markers and I've added some of my trademark bling in the form of three red gems.

I did think about using a black and white polka dot paper but nothing is as dramatic as red - my favourite colour. With having dark hair it is a colour I often turn to when dressing up - you always stand out when wearing red. I would love this dress - it's like a grown up version of Minnie Mouse's frock!

The 'fabulous' word art was a freebie long ago from Create with TLC and the birthday greeting was printed in Microsoft Word. 

I'm entering this card into the challenges at:

Shopping Our Stash Challenge - paper piecing
Creative Moments Challenge - monochromatic
As You Like It Challenge - favourite colour (red!) 
Seize The Birthday - anything goes 
4 Crafty Chicks - clean and simple 

Thanks for looking - don't forget to join in the fun at Simply Papercraft!
