CSCC Presents Breakfast at Tiffany's

Have you seen the cinema pick for this week at Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge? It's Breakfast at Tiffany's... how fun! And, after drooling over at Sankari and Brooke's card, I had to make my own inspiration.

I had this dress template for I don't know how long that I've been saving for the right time, and today is just the perfect day to use it. I traced my template on a Basic Black card stock and run through Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder, and I also did the same thing on the base of the card. I wanted to use the same color as the Tiffany & Co. box but I didn't have the ribbon to go with it. So, I decided to use Pink Pirouette card stock to match with this Pearl with pink ribbon. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up, Absolutely Fabulous.

Stamps: Absolutely Fabulous from Stampin' Up

Paper: Pink Pirouette, Basic Black card stock from Stampin' Up

Ink: Versafine Onyx Black

Accessories: Pearls with Pink ribbon, Scallop Punch, Stampin' Dimensional, Cuttlebug and CB Swiss Dots embossing folder

Catherine,
This card is totally "Audreylicious" I LOVE all the texture and 3-dness going on... All girls with paper doll are going to want you to make them THIS dress.. In fact BIG girls(me) like paper dresses like this one too.... I totally want to take this dress right of the card and just turn it around and see it flow... I love the swag on the waist... perfect touch...

Your sentiment cracks me up.. How cool.. "Did you know that "Kristina Werner" designed that set in her own handwriting.. Cool hey!!

I hope you have a great time with this challenge.. Please come play again . Can't wait to see more YUMMY cards from you.
Hugs
Brooke

Keri said...

This card is beautiful!!! I have been asked by my future sister-in-law to make "Will you be my bridemaids" cards and I was stumped as to what I should use for my focal point on the front on the card. Your dress is wonderful and I was hoping that you would share the template with me so I could create some cards of my own. Thanks -Keri
