Sonoma and Art Philosophy

Well, I have been lifting more ideas from Mandy Leahy. She posted a beautiful card and video tutorial, with a dress she made using a shape from Close To My Heart's Art Philosophy cartridge. I have changed colours and added a few more layers to create this card using Sonoma colours.

Following Mandy's instructions, I cut 3 scalloped circles at 3"; 3 1/4" and 3 1/2" in retired Amethyst; Smokey Plum; and Pansy Purple respectively. I scored them between each scallop, leaving 2 to cut out for the top of the dress.

I added gold ribbon that had been included in a Creative Basic paper pack and cut and rolled a flower from Art Philosophy, aslo. I added Stardust Glitz to the centre of the flower and top of the dress. I also added an almost retired Kraft border with the strip of Sonoma paper.

The dress form image was stamped in Cocoa from the Tailor-Made stamp set and the sentiment is from Wings Workshop On The Go set.

All supplies are Close To My Heart, unless noted.
