little black dress.

This one's for my PTI princesses - you stylish ladies!

The challenge was to use a banner on our cards - I kept it super simple with PTI's double-ended banner.

I started out with a basic grey card base (SU) and used my button boutique die (PTI) to cut a very large window in the middle.  I used my "vintage wallpaper" background stamp to create the look of those lacey, little black dresses.  You know the ones I mean?  So cute.  Wish I could pull them off... sigh.

My lady is from "iconic image" (PTI), and because I didn't want her to be a weird, floating head in a vast expanse, I added a mat stack 5 layer to back her up.

Hope you like it!


  1. This is so cool and elegant, Elena! I love all the layering!

  2. Such a beautiful card. I agree--it is very elegant.

  3. Beautiful card. Love the background behind the cameo.

  4. I agree - it is a really nice card. As much as I like weird floating heads, adding the extra layers provides a good depth to the card.
