A Fashion Forward Challenge!

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

I hope your week is going well so far! Are you starting to  make weekend plans yet!? That usually helps to get through the rest of the week,doesn't it?? ;)
 Today I have a card that I did for this months Unity Challenge which was Fashion Forward.
So I did a Birthday card using the set "Undeniably You" from  Unity Stamp Co.
I used card stock from GinaK,black and Ivory. The black base was run through my cuttlebug using the swiss dots embossing folder. On the Ivory I did use some Memento Angel Pink for softness around the image. I used Unity's Palette Noir for the main image and the sentiment,as well as some clear embossing powder. The ink can be purchased through {ippity} so if you are interested just let me know! I really like this hybrid ink, and it seems to work fine with my copics and perfectly with embossing!

I used Cosmo Cricket Delovely for the dp behind the image,and Making Memories for the skirt of the dress which I paper pieced, along with copic glitter pens to color in the bodice and the ruffle of the dress. The crystal flourishes are from Zva,and I cut them apart. The image and the extra layers were cut our using the oval nestabilites and then pop dots to give the layers some dimension.

For the inside of the card, the sentiments are from the sets "Sweet Celebration" and "Happy Everything" from Unity as well as from a set by Hero Arts called "Celebrate all Day".

The sentiments from the 2 sets just seemed to work so well together! I did use a clear star pen on the main 2 sentiments to make them stand out as one verse even though they were from 2 different Unity sets! Love when you combine the sets,it just gives you so many more possibilities. The martini glasses are from Zva as well. I purchased those from Kate at i{heart} papers. As well as the silk ribbon and the flourishes!

I hope that you like it!
Thank you for stopping by today, I truly appreciate it!
Your kind comments are so sweet and always lift my spirits!

May you be Blessed in all you do!
