A Little Black Dress

At the beginning of the year I was lucky enough to win a $10 prize from Sweet Stamps Store and the store were very generous in reducing postage costs to the UK in order for me to cash in my prize.  Thanks ladies!

Anyway, I chose an Artsy Fartsy stamp called Black Dress & Shoes and today is this lovely new stamp's first outing!


Papers on my card are a mix of Basic Grey, Little Back Dress and MME, Lost & found - both lovely pads! My pearls are all from Hobby House courtesy of Pami and my fabby candy win last year.

Challenges;
Allsorts - Ladies day
Papertake - Great Sketch
Creative Moments - Swirls & pearls - Swirls on the dress and a string of pearls
Simon Says Stamp - Pearls
Crafting When We Can - Lots of Bling - Are pearls bling, hope so?
