All for the sake of getting the right colours

I have been wanting to make a card with a pretty dress for sometime but didn't  really know what sort of theme would go with a dress. I finally decided that a celebrate card is just right for this pretty dress and can be used for a variety of occasions.

I purchased this dress digital stamp yesterday, I have included the original picture so you can see how I altered it. I printed the  dress image with the sentiment and then printed the dress a second time the same size which I cut out and traced onto the blue top and aqua skirt, I embossed the skirt to add some texture. I added self adhesive diamante's and the green bow to add to a little more detail. I am happy with this simple design and think it will become a standard for a simple card. 

The Challenges I have included-
CAS-ual Fridays-lime, aqua and navy
The crafty bloggers network-Anything goes
Mema's Crafts-Anything goes
Jackson's digital expressions-Anything goes

Anyway, another weekend that has gone by really quickly, I am already hanging for next weekend. Wishing everyone a great week :)
