CMCC#8... Birthday Wishes

Hi Friends!

I am playing along today with Colour Me.  We are challenged to work with Baked Brown Sugar, Soft Sky and Pistachio Pudding. I thought of creating a baby card, but then changed my mind.

This is what I came up with:

The card base is Very Vanilla, and the pretty patterned paper is from My Little Shoebox.  The dress form was die-cut with Tim Holtz' sewing room die, and was embellished with a Soft Sky color crochet trim that I found in my stash.  A trio of pearls completes the look!  The dress form is matted on a Very Vanilla oval, then layered over a baby blue panel.  The sentiment is from Inspired by Stamping Fancy Sentiments, and was stamped in Early Espresso ink.  I adhered pearls next to it and added more crochet trim dividing the patterned paper and the soft blue card stock. 

This card is for a couple of challenges:

Seize the Birthday - "Anything Goes" Birthday
Inspired by Stamping - February Customer Gallery Contest
