What would it be like to even wear something as lovely as each of those (and look like that while wearing them)? Lovely!

I fell in love with two gowns and chose the colors of the first one for my layout. Here it is:


In this LO, I used what I call my stitch and shred technique, LOL. I stitched a circle using navy blue thread and then pulled threads to create some loose strings. It's one of those texture things I love to do. I cut birthday presents from other papers and used pop dots to elevate all of them. I, then, ran a piece of green ribbon from the top to the bottom so they look stacked and connected. I added a turquoise grosgrain bow to the to of the stack Under the photo, I used a border punch to create the scalloped edge and then added two kinds of ribbon in matching colors to enhance the border. I punched some flowers and then added buttons. I cut some little details (inside circles and on the sides of the title words) from the PP and enhanced them with Stickles. I cut the round shapes from my Nestabilities dies. I cut the large circle using decorative scissors with a cut to match the green border on the edge of the background paper. I printed the photo in greyscale so the colors wouldn't compete with the colors in the LO. TFL!
