Splitcoaststampers and Vintage Vogue

It's been quite a long while since I've participated in one of Splitcoaststampers challenges, and I want to get back into the action. If you are not familiar with, you should is one of the very top spots for fantastic inspiration, fun times, and it's FREE! 

I've made up a card for today's Friday challenge: Free for All (F4A97 challenge and gallery).

Today's challenge is: "Break Out the Party Dress!" to use a dress in your design...Although I am not dressing up during the holidays, I did have occasion to do so this past November for the Marine's Ball here in Dushanbe. My dress had a similar shape, but was lacking the volume in the skirt area, due to my lack of fluffy petticoat to wear beneath. This gal has the perfect fluff factor and shape!

Love this 6 X 6" paper pad and Chipboard Pops pack by Pink Paislee, "Vintage Vogue." The prints in the dp pad bring me back to days past (this print is very similar to one that I had a one piece shorts jumpsuit in) and the chipboard pack is filled with fun pieces.

Here's a closeup of the dressed up vintage gal, along with a floral swag of chipboard pieced over the skirt. I've added a couple of Kaisercraft Rhinestones, a paper pleated border (made with a Score It All Board), and tiny May Art's Silk Ribbon Bow.

All the supplies for this design are available at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. Sharon has quite a few items marked down now, please check it out!

I hope that you check out today's challenge at Splitcoast, and maybe participate yourself!

Oh, this is so awesome! I grew up with this type of style that women wore to work everyday and I still LOVE it! TFS the glamour. HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Happy New Year, Deb!

Do they celebrate New Year's over there? Josh is graduating from Basic Military Training next Thursday in TX! I can't wait to see him, but am dreading saying good-bye again. He leaves the next day for a year of Tech School...winter break is the only longer than a week-end break he can take for almost a year! It won't be worth flying here for 1 day! I can't wait to see him!

This is such a cute card! I love that you had just the right piece of chipboard to use for this challenge! I love the bg pattern, too! This is just precious,Deb!
I love all the sparkles you added to it.

He IS Able!
