The trim on the Tory Burch dress instantly made me think of Mexican Papel Picado banners with their intricate cut-outs. I tried to replicate that idea with an MFT stitched flag die cut that was partially die cut with a MB Piestra Tile border die. The flags are inked with Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink and strung over a Salty Ocean inked panel. The sentiment is from PTI's Stylish Sentiments: Birthday stamp set.
I'm also linking this card to the Happy Little Stampers December CAS Challenge to use a favorite technique (partial die cutting) and Seize the Birthday in the Anything Goes category.
It looks like I will be heading back to my desk late tonight to work on something a little more masculine.
Thanks for stopping by,
