Easy as 1,2,3.......

Hello all!
I'm back for another challenge over at the fabulous Eclectic Ellapu and this week the Pink DT are asking you to follow our crafting recipe!  The ingredients you will need are as follows -
1 x die cut
2 x patterned papers
3 x embellishents 
a dash of ribbon

      A simple enough recipe to follow I'm sure you will agree but also one that gives you endless scope for creativity.  This challenge was the idea of fellow DT member Laurian so why not head over to her blog and all the other DT members to see what fantastic creations they have come up with? - you can find links to their blogs over at Eclectic Ellapu or click on the Design Team tab at the top of my blog.

                  For my card, I decided to use one of my own digis, (available here from Can You Digi It), as it's ideal for paper piecing - I used the print and cut feature of my Cameo to get the dress die cut and added lace under the top skirt to add height.  I decorated with some flat back adhesive pearls, a small ribbon bow and a   "Style" paper tag.



      I would like to enter this into the challenges at -




Thanks so much for stopping by :)

Daun, oh my! This card is gorgeous! I love how you did the dress. Very pretty and love all the little touches: the lace peaking out under the dress, the ribbon at the waist line, the text paper, the sentiment tag. Your card is very cohesive and looks great!
thank you for playing along with us @ OCC. I hope we see more of your work soon.

Darling card, Dawn! Love the dress, the papers you chose for the card, the design, and the embellies--especially that bit of lace under the dress--perfect! :^)
