This card was made for two challenges. It is for today's Inspiration Challenge(IC197)! Thanks so much, Stef. I chose my inspiration picture from a little girls dress and tights look seen here.

I am also using the VLVSEP03 sketch with a twist challenge. The twist is to make it for a lady in my life. I think I have a special person in mind for this one.

I am using all Verve stamps. I am using the Bountiful Backgrounds, Abundant Blessings, and Floral Whimsy sets. NO dp was used in the making of this card. Everything you see uses stamps from these sets. I actually focused on recreating the look of the outfit alittle.

I used the vertical line image from the bountiful backgrounds and stamped a bordeaux ink and creamy caramel. I sponged some ranger antique linen all over and soft suede around the edges.

For the little tiny horizontal print, I used one of the little images from the Floral Whimsy set to stamp different colors. Again, I sponged ranger antique linen all over and used soft suede on the edges.

For the rectangle top pattern, I used the larger fern image and stamped bordeaux, soft suede, hibiscus burst, and creamy caramel. I sponged ranger ink and edged with soft suede.

I embossed and sponged the ivory background panel and faux stitch including the horizontal tiny print panel.

I used the sentiment from Floral Whimsy. I softly stenciled inside the circle. I added a few tiny gold pearls. I added three little flowers to mimic the dress and topped with some gold pearls.

I love this color combo. Rich razzleberry, creamy caramel, ivory, and soft suede. I did use alittle hibiscus burst sparingly.
