Pallenge #6

Wow...sorry it's been so long since I've posted! I got busy with work and home life, unfortunately. And this week has sucked because 4 out of 5 work days I've spent most of the day with a headache/migraine. :(

Anyway, I did find some time to get crafty finally! We were issued another Pallenge, this time by Monica. All we needed to do was make something containing flowers. I hemmed and hawed trying to figure out what to do. In the end, I wound up with no stamping whatsoever!
A few weeks ago, I saw the template for this on someone's blog (they got it from SCS) and thought it's perfect for a fun girly card! Since it's spring now, all the women getting married this summer will be having bridal showers and batchlorette parties and I think this is the perfect card!

The base is pretty large....5.5x8.5, but the dress itself is big! I made the base of Smokey Shadow and the skirt is from a patterned paper pack of DCWV that I've had for eons. The top is Raspberry Fizz and the fun bow is some cheapie pink Michaels ribbon from the Dollar Spot!

Thanks for the challenge Monica! I had fun trying to do something new! :)

Is your head feeling better?? I read an article that because of the winter we had that everything bloomed at once so it is causing people to have a terrible time with the pollen ect......... I hope you feel better!!!
