A Couture Birthday


It's that time again. Time to Waltz with friends of Waltzingmouse!! How delishesly fun!! Just click on the image above, and it will take you to the Waltzingmouse ball room (or forum :).

This month's theme is a Birthday party, so I decided to mix it up a bit with a variety of WMS images. These are the sets I used: Frame it, Eat Cake, and You're Lovely.


The dp I used, for the card and the pieced dress, is Journey by Authentique. I also used a Prima Rose (Which I added some Silver Ice Stickles to) and leaves, some Maya Road tickets and a stick pin, and some Zva Creations and I-Rock rhinestones. All the papers were ink distressed with Vintage Photo (Ranger Distress Ink), and Onyx Black (Versafine). Here's a close up of the Couture dress. I added some tear drop Zva Creative Rhinestones to the bottom of the bodice. LOVE this image Claire has designed!



That about sums it up ya'll. Thank you so much for dropping by. Hope you're having a fantastic weekend!!

Happy Stamping!
Tosh

Boy - oh - boy, Tosh. You knocked this one right out of the ball park! Oh yes you did! You have such a knack for expressing yourself artistically that when I look at your creations, I just stop and stare, mesmerized, so much that I feel I forget to breathe. This was one of those many times.
