'Cute Dressmaker'

This is my first post for today, please pop back again later to see my creation for The Stamping Chef! Hugs xx

Today is the start of a new challenge over at The Perfect Sentiment. I just wanted to say a huge thank you to those of you who entered last week, some fantastic Crafters out there!
Anyhoos on with this weeks challenge


a fantastic theme, when I saw who was sponsoring us this week I had an idea in my head straight away. I've had this image for quite a while & never used her & the 'Boofle' embossing folder is new stash but was yet to be used. So this card kinda just fell together & I love it!!
