Sunday Birthday Dress

Happy Sunday! - Holly has a great colour challenge for us this week at Sunday Stamps.  I love red and black together - and this week Holly has selected Cherry Cobbler to be paired with Basic Black and Baja Breeze.
I love how easy the Seam Binding ribbon is to use....I had started out with a piece of Baja Breeze and twisted it tightly to form a waistband on this dress. In the end it looked like it really needed a bow - so I added on and "curled" the ends of the ribbon so they flowed nicely.
The "poster" in the background is created from the Designer Frames Embossing folder - I cut the frame out along the embossing and then added a white piece in the centre for the birthday greeting.

Be sure to check out the design team's creations at the Sunday Stamps Challenge Blog - there are cards as well as a scrapbook layout using our colours.
Remember to link your creation back to the blog so we can select a Top Pick!    You have until March 15,  to post your project.  Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

Thanks for dropping by -
Joan

Just lovely, Joan! I love that wonderful bow on the dress, and the frame you've created for the sentiment... and of course that lovely pearl detail.
