BBTB2/ForeverYoung/DressForm


Our challenge at BBTB2 this week was to use Forever Young as the cartridge, and to design with the dress form. I had this grand idea of dressing the dress form but it didn't work out...so it's just standing there looking pretty. I added another cut with one of the silhouette chickies and dress and she seems to be reading the titles which say "glitz, trendy, couture and glamour". I added a little purse from the same cart just to bring in another subject. The edges are from MS and EKSuccess edge punches. And I also added a ribbon and some gold jewels.

The dress form, cute little girl and purse have been popdotted, and they all have been embossed for added texture.
Thanks for looking and do visit BBTB2 to see what the designers have presented for this challenge.
I thought I would add the little card I did initially. I kept looking at it and wasn't happy so I put it aside and did a second card. Nonetheless, here it is...in all its purpleness.
