The Card Concept Challenge # 91-Blossoms in Bloom


Hello my stampy friends!
What a pretty party dress we have here at the Card Concept!!!
This dress reminds me of one of my favorite photos of my mom.
She had on a dress very similar to this one in the photo!



I did not have a die of a dress form, so I had to draw and cut one out myself!
I started with white card stock, which I colored with Broken China Distress Oxide ink.



Next, I die cut lots of tiny flowers and leaves with the older Mini Flowers & Leaves die from Simon Says Stamps. I placed tiny gems and pearls on the center of the flowers. I wanted this dress to look very retro!




My card style today would be considered 
Clean & Simple
One Main Image
Lots of open space (uncluttered)
Limited layers and embellishments
Quick & easy to recreate


I hope you will play in our fun challenge! 
We LOVE seeing your creations and how you interpret the inspiration photos!
Feel free to use any of the styles we have defined or create your own with a combination of styles! 
All of the different styles are explained HERE.

Please go to the Card Concept blog HERE to see what my talented design teammates have created and join us! 
You will be so inspired!

Thanks for stopping by!
Mackie
