Creative Craft Cottage #42 spots or stripes

Happy Sunday morning friends,
I do hope you are having a wonderful weekend and if you are celebrating Father's Day, as we are here in South Africa, then I hope it extra special for the men in your life. Both my Dad and Papa, my FIL have left us many years ago, but we still remember them with lots of love.

This is the first of a 2 part blog as we have 2 sponsors for this challenge. 
The first one I am using is The Cutting Café and the theme this fortnight is spots or stripes.
 For my card I have used the "Fun with dress forms" and you can find it HERE. This is a super file. There are cutting files and templates if you do not have a cutting machine. There are so many options to use in this set.

The DT have all created lovely projects using files from our sponsor, so please have a look at the lovely inspirational cards.

I decided to make a side step card.

The background for the card is actually preglued fabric. It comes on a paper backing.

I then used various pieces from my stash and distressed, rubbed, and generally mutilated them to create a vintage look....used distress inks to help with this.

The dress forms I cut out and inked the edges. Cut the dress from patterned polka dot paper.

The shoe is a Marianne Design die, which I inked before taking out of the die.
The sentiment is included in the file. I cut it and printed part onto the dress form and the rest onto a label.

Finished it off with some gauze, lace, a seam binding bow, coloured with distress inkpad, pearls and a beaded pin.

I will enter it in the following challenges:
