Have a sweet day

I hope you have had a sweet day!

I wanted to share a card that I made for the  Retrosketch Challenge #78.

Isn't this little dress the cutest? It is a Spellbinders die. It was very plain until I dolled it up with some pearls and lace (and a little ribbon). The background was inspired by a post I just read on Jennifer McGuire's blog about how to use your scrap paper. I cut lots of little strips of scrap paper and glued them to a 3 x 5 1/2 piece of white paper.  Pretty cool, huh?
Since the dress was so cute, I felt I needed to soften the background a little. So I added the yellow scalloped edges.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Yes, it is the cutest, Mackie, and the sweetest! I love the way you dolled it up and set it against the beautiful patterned paper background with scalloped edges!!
