It's Only Fitting...

Hello everyone! I hope you had (or are having) a great Wednesday. Mine is going pretty well. The week is almost over and I am SO glad. Remember last week when I said that I was going to order Boys will be Boys by Taylored Expressions? Yeah, well I least I THOUGHT I did. Turns out, I just bought what was already in my cart and that was Hangin' Out. Ugh! I was so mad at myself, and had planned on sending it back. Well, lo and behold it came in the mail today and it is SO darn cute! I had to open it up and use it right I just love this little dress and I already have plans for a cute card for hubby (um, obviously not with the dress!!) and a baby card,too. Love it! So, I also decided to play along with Taylor's sketch for this week.

What do you think? I just love it. I wanted it to have a retro feel and I think the paper combined with the dress and the colors totally made that happen. I'm really happy with this card. I used the dress form from the Chic Boutique set from SU,too, in a really cute way I think. 

Stamps: Hangin Out (taylored expressions); Chic Boutique (stampin up)
Cardstock: Lemon Tart, White, Black (papertrey); DCWV patterned paper
Ink: Black (stampin up); Fresh Snow (papertrey)
Extras: Grosgrain and button (papertrey)

I absolutely love this card. The colour combo is one of my PTI favorites and you always have the most jaw-dropping ribbon treatments. Chic Boutique just graduated to my must-have list thanks to you!

Fabulous card! I definitely think you achieved the retro look. I can't believe the dress and the dress form aren't from the same set-the go perfectly together!

Keva, this is fantastic! The placement of the elements is just right, your ribbon treatment is fabulous, and you did your cool offset circle thing again! LOVE it!
