Celebrate today and everyday

Just one card today - chatting too long on skype with the family!!!
I loved how this card turned out in the end and I have followed the colour scheme from Diecut Dreams - white, red and blue, the sketch is from Card Positioning Systems #223. I have also drawn inspiration from Quirky Crafts where you had a choice of 3 out of 9 and I chose 3 backing papers (Loire Valley and Beauty Vintage papers), embossing (dot embossing) and ribbon (the skirt and ribbon that I thread through the ribbon slide are from Bella 'vintage beauty'). I have also incorporated a little sparkle by making a bling belt and this is for Crafty Creations - let it shine.

a close up of the dress - I stamped the top half (Lawn Fawn 'swimsuit season' stamps) and trimmed 2 lengths of ruffle ribbon to make a skirt and to hide the join between the top and bottom I attached a row of rhinestones to make a little belt.

materials - blue card stock, American Crafts vanilla card; Bella 'vintage beauty', Kaiser 'loire valley' papers; Lawn Fawn 'swimsuit season' and Hero Arts 'to you' stamps; Versa magic 'night sky' ink; Bella 'vintage beauty' trimmings; Kaiser rhinestones; Ranger white opal liquid pearls; Cuttlebug dot embossing folder and ribbon slide dies; Fiskar 'round the bend' punch.
