The Papillon Boutique

Hello blog friends,

Time to check in for a new challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow today.This fortnight’s theme is “Anything Vintage Goes”.  I can’t wait to see all the lovely vintage or shabby style creations for this all time favorite theme! You can make anything you wish (cards, altered items. gifts, etc.) as long as it
is vintage – or shabby chic.

I spotted this mannequin image from Manualidades Facilisimo and it reminds me of my own wedding gown … although it is so many years ago!. I had so much fun embellishing this gown and the rest of the card. I printed two images and fuzzy cut the top of the skirt and bodice and used mirror tape to give dimension. The lace frills on the bodice and at the bottom of the skirt were highlighted with glitter glue … just love the bling.The base card was  cut with a Spellbinders Nestabilities Card Creator die “Detailed Scallops” to frame the beautiful image. Hope you like my take on the challenge.

    Ai Amelia jy laat ons ver terug dink? Mens voel of jy gou die rok van die hanger wil afhaal om aan te trek en op jou geliefde te wag om jou te kom haal vir die bal!
    Jou kaartjie is so pragtig met al die fyn detail op die rok. Die fyn aanwending van die glitter is so kunstig gedoen. Liefdetjies
