Another black and white.

Hi everyone, not a bad day just a shower or 2, but, with SUN.

In my follower emails today I had 2 which got me excited, so I thought I would use them for my next card.  Shirley, a great person HERE offered a freebie dress which I just loved and had to make a card today with it.  The other was about a blog friend, (hope you don't mind me calling you that Marie, 'cause I know I is  awful cheeky to you LOL)  she has joined the DT HERE.

Anyhow on to my card, it's another B&W, and as the dress is so lovely I kept it a CAS style.  The dress is from Shirley's Templates, the paper is from Pink Petticoat and I think matches the swirls in the dress.  I made a circle and with Atomic cupcake's chalk action in PS I edged it with black and cut it out by hand, added some pearls on wire from Hobbycraft and a little elastic ribbon? that is from stash. Simple! You gotta love the dress :)


I shall enter the following challenges.
