Sorry for my long silence on the blog, dear friends.  I know it's been almost a month since I've posted.  All is going well so far in my neck of the woods, just busy as always with the day job and my little family :)  

I've been prepping some pics for a blog post for a couple of weeks now, but had not gotten around to it, so I suppose now is as good a time as any, right?  As you all know, I've been really into the dress form framelits, so I have yet another one to share.  This is a card I made for my Mom's birthday in March.  I had fun modifying the dresses and making my own outfit {hee!}.  

I made the cardi out of the short-sleeved dress and just cut the skirt off, then cut the blouse piece in half and added the pearl "buttons."  I love the dahlia flower in Primrose Petal that I had to incorporate it as an embellie for the card.  I also fell in love with the butterfly print paper from the Patio Party DSP.  Such a cute fluttery dress, no?  Here's the full picture below.  I even made a little balloon, too!  I cut a very narrow piece of DSP scrap using Stampin'Up!'s awesome new paper cutter and then I curled it using the paper snips.  Fun fun!

Hope you like it!  Here's some product info for you - enjoy!
