Shopping Our Stash #257 ~~ Always a Bridesmaid

Another fabulous challenge at Shopping Our Stash ~~ Always a Bridesmaid!! Challenge is to use a dress or a dress form.  Well I used some serious stash this week ~~ brads that are at least 7 years old and never opened and the stamp set is retired from Stampin'up from 2005 and I'm sure it was bought second hand.


When I started out I knew the stamp I wanted to use but had no idea of how to design a card until I saw the colour challenge at Just Us girls and voila three dresses done in the three colours mustard, turquoise and hot pink. The dresses were fussy cut and attached to the hangers.  The cute hangers are brads from the eyelet outlet I bought when Stamping Bella was still a storefront in Toronto.


Close up of the hangers, two dresses are flat attached and the pink one is elevated.


Finished inside using the scraps of patterned paper.

I would like to enter this in:


Thanks for stopping by today, head over to the main blog and check out the rules and see what the other DT members have made for Always a Bridesmaid..
