Card Creating Tuesday - Sketch

Hello, and welcome to

For today I chose to use the following sketch:

Now, I used the sketch as my inspiration, but I did
not follow it exactly!!
Here is my sneak peak:
 I used some shiny cardstock so, the
photograph is not the best.   I don't usually make
this kind of vintage looking card, but
I might have to since I really love the
way this card came out!!

I used Nifty Fifties for the dress, it is cut at 4"
from page 30 of the handbook.
The pattern paper for the dress is from
Webster's Pages.  I love the vintage
look of this paper.  It was just the look
I was going for.  I added some
liquid pearl dots in  Petal Pink.  I also
distress the paper
with Tattered Rose Distress Ink.

For the base of the card, I used an ivory card base
that I distress with Antique Lace Distress Ink.
The next layer was a pale pink paper also
from Webster's Pages.  I embossed it with
a Damask Decor Embossing Folder.
I then added some Tattered Rose Distress Ink.
The next layer is cut from the
Spellbinders Fleur Di Lis Rectangles from
Bazzil cardstock.  The final label was
cut from Spellbinders Label Nineteen.
The paper is DCWV Luxury Stack.

I added 2 pieces of beautiful trim
also from Webster's Pages.  And some
pearls from the dollar bin at Joann's.

Thanks for stopping by today and please make sure
you stop by My Cricut Craft Room to see what
the rest of the design team made today.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges:
