dreamy white dress

I have a dreamy white dress card today. 

 It all started with a dressy challenge over at CCCB. There has been such a buzz over dressforms recently, so I thought I would do one as well. The shape has been adapted from random google images. It is hand cut, and then embossed with a CB folder. 
The dress is cut from a piece of lacy curtain fabric. Just a simple square, which I ruffled one edge and tied it with ribbon to the dressform. 

I rolled a rose from the same ribbon to form the centre of the bow. Then added gold twine and flowing leaves. The leaves are die cut with TH regal crest.


The whole thing sits to one side of a mountainfold base. The base is made from a transparency sheet, overlaid with a rectangular doiley.

I love this picture, with the glow from the sunlight.
