Put on your party dress!

I remember loving going to parties, but now I'd much rather have a good meal with a friend or two - yes, I am getting too old!  Still, there are occasions that call for a good party dress and I fell in love with this one by Michelle Perkett Studio...

 
 

Beautiful image, huh?!  I won the MPS challenge last week and received a free digi of my choice but of course I had to buy a couple  more to keep it company  ;)

I am entering this card into their challenge this week for turquoise and brown - hopefully it still counts because there is a dash of green leaves!

The royal wedding is later on today in the UK - if you're into it, then I hope you enjoy your day!


Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, My Minds Eye Stella & Rose Gertie paper pad Stamps: MPS put on your party dress (inc sentiment), My Favorite Things sentiment inside card
Mediums: Copics, Sakura white gel pen
Accents: antique gold velvet lace, beads from stash
Tools: Fiskars border punches, Corner Chomper, My Favorite Things rolled rose and leaf dies

I love this card, dress is gorgeous, love the colours and roses are beautiful. Fab card.

I'm with you, meal (or even coffee and cake) with a friend is far better than a party!

Have a great day. Jo x

This is a lovely card Mary, great colours. I am not a mannequin lover but when there is a dress on the stand it is a whole new ball game. And a lovely dress to boot.
