I created my belated birthday card using Verses Fabulous & Classy Stamp set, Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe Pattern Paper andSTAEDTLER Karat Aquarell Watercolor Pencils.

Stamps - Verses Rubber Stamps
The dress form is stamped in Ranger Black Archival on Vanilla then paper pieced using a scrap of Graphic 45 pattern paper.  The floral pattern paper was colored with Staedtler Karat Aquarell Watercolor Pencils, then sponged with Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.  To embellish I added a Prima Button tied with Hemp and Black Vintage Seam Binding.  The inside of the card reads I'm just fashionably late.
