New Challenge up at Just For Fun ! Ribbons/ Lace 7

Hello! it’s time for a new challenge over at Just for fun! the theme this month is Ribbons / Lace
and I have created a gorgeous slightly vintage inspired mannequin card for you as inspiration
To make this card I have used – a 6 x 6 inch card blank in white from AMD
, papermania sew lovely papers 
peach coredinations cardstock
kraft chequered card
spellbinders floral ovals dies
gorjuss ribbon
see through white ribbon
white small ribbon bow
a strip of off white lace
mannequin cut from in built designs on the scan ‘n’cut
small half pearls in pink
small flower gems 
‘sew special’ sentiment stamp
inkpad SU not quite navy
I cut a matt of peach coredinations slightly smaller than the card base, and then a strip of both the papers – making the top a little larger so I could overlap them, it made it easier to join!
i then added the two layers of ribbon and adhered them to the back, before attaching it to the card blank, I then stamped the sentiment in the bottom right corner. 
I then cut the large floral oval out of peach and the next size down in the burlap style paper. after poking out all the bits, I popped 3d foam pads on the back and added them to the card, layering the second off centre.
I got the glue gun out and used t to adhere the lace to the mannequin, putting in little pleats, then finishing the skirt off with a ribbon bow
i used 3d foam pads to join that to the smaller floral oval, and then I added all the little pearls and gems as finishing touches 
Hope you like it and that it has given you some inspiration to join this months challenge over at JFF!

I would like to enter this make in – pearls sewing/fashion
