Back to School in Style - RCC85

Welcome to another challenge from the Ribbon Carousel Blog!  This months RCC Challenge theme is Back to School, be sure to continue reading below on how you can play along and enter to win a Ribbon Carousel!  Inspiration for the challenge is posted every Tuesday Ribbon Carousel Blog!

I went a totally different route with this months challenge - every girl needs a new dress to go back to school in, right?

I used the Alterations Sewing Die to cut the dress from from Black and Kraft card stock.  Using the Scor-Pal I added diagonal scores to the bodice of the dress, and added stamped flowers in Black to the bottom using North Coast Creations Find Beauty and Heaven's Masterpiece stamp sets.  I cut down the stand of the dress form, so that my die would bit on a standard A2 sized card.  To embellish I added Black Seam Binding and Zva Creative Black Crystal Flourishes and a Mini Rose.  The quote is from Our Daily Bread Designs Dreams stamp set.

Details:
Stamps - North Coast Creations (Heaven's Masterpiece, Find Beauty) Our Daily Bread Designs (Dreams)
Card Stock - Kraft, Black
Ink - Ranger Black Archival, Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink
Other - Scor-Pal/Scor-Tape, Ink Blending Tool, My Minds Eye pattern paper, Dimensionals, Alterations Sewing Die, Big Shot, Zva Creative Mini Rose/Jet Black Crystal Flourish

To play along, simply create a project with the theme of Celebrations and be sure to include some ribbon or twine! You have until September 29th to add your creation to this post at the Ribbon Carousel Blog.  One Random Challenge Participant will receive one of these wonderful Ribbon Carousels!  The winner will be announced on September 30th , on the Ribbon Carousel Blog!
