Inspired!

Yup, I was truly inspired! Last night I saw this incredible card by Vicky of Clips n Cuts. Here is her card:

Do you see how she dressed up the dress form??!!! SO CREATIVE! This morning I tried my hand on it. I changed it up a bit.

I know it is NOWHERE close to Vicky’s card but HEY! I had to try! This card is based on the sketch at Wee Memories and colour palette at Play Date Cafe. I didn’t want to do a pencil shaded image again for the Black white with a splash of purple challenge (PDC) so this is what I came up with.

I have used SIX ribbons on this one… I had something else on my mind for the top panel but I completely forgot that there was even a top panel in the sketch! This frilly ribbon was added at the last moment.

Making the skirt was quite tough! Here I have first stuck the white ribbon on to the purple organza one then attached the purple frilly ribbon beneath the white ribbon. I glued the metallic silver ribbon on to the purple frilly one to hide the joint. Then I added one more layer of white ribbon. Quite messy eh? My two way tape wouldn't have hold all the ribbon, this is why I used glue. Hope you like it! And please do try this! Such a wonderful idea! Vicky, you are one CREATIVE gal!
