It's a Girl Thing

After a morning spent working...and then sorting out dusty books...I decided to treat myself to a little play time...and have made a card for a few challenges: the Creative Card Crew's 'Girls Just Wanna Have Fun' challenge; Stamp Something's 'Paper Piecing' challenge; and the Dutch Dare to 'Use Lace on Our Cards'.
I paper pieced my Gorjuss Girl's dress with some BasicGrey 'Blush' paper, and stamped some swirls (by Whiff of Joy) in the corners of another piece of the same paper for the background. The strip across the centre was embossed with the Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' folder, and the lace is from Hobbycraft.
