pretty dress for BBTB weekly challenge

What an awesome job my fellow design team girls this week on the BBTB challenge ! we were asked to use the princess dress from the dreams come true cart, well i did not have this cart so my lovely friend and design team member Sharon ( grammas) sent me the beautiful floral cut which i believe the paper is basic grey ! I used the cuttlebug for the embossed happy birthday and also the scrolled corner. The lace edge is the Martha Stewart punch and the shoe from sizzex die . Thanks for taking the time to view and leaving a comment !! please check out all the other fantastic creations here.

I made this for the weekly challenges over at hallmark scrapbooks !! this week it was my turn to pick a challenge and i came up with using the calling bird from the Joy of the season cart ! I used a tin foil baking tray for the background which i embossed and inked with alcohol inks ( came out really cool ) Thanks Okie !! The corner flourish and tag are from the storybook cart and the border is made with my threading water punch and cuttlebug border folder. I used white chalk ink and white pen to highlight ! I also pop dotted the bird on top of the shadow white bird and cutsmall pieces out of the feathers so the white would show through !! TFL !!!

I also embossed the snowflake with the swiss dots folder and used the snowflake folder for the corner piece. wording is a rub on ! metal snowflake brads finish it off !!
