“Dress up” Birthday Card for a Dressmaker

Today’s my godmother’s birthday.  She’s the best sewer I know!  I found the ideal designer paper and Framelits dies to make her a card, I’m pretty sure she will like!

I used the “Dress up” Framelits dies (p.32 in the Occasions Mini-Catalogue) to cut the dress form and dress.  Also from the mini-catalogue, the paper used for the dress and the background paper (big oval shape) is from the Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack and shows sewing patterns (perfect for my theme!). I added a pearl necklace, a “belt” and flower to dress it up! I stamped some flowers in the Background (from Secret Garden stamp set).
