From Dress to Purse!

Something about this photo...it just seems so alluring...
 This dress makes me want to transfer the design into a card. This image is the latest Tuesday Trigger (see Luminous Layers). I am certainly no fashionista, but that shouldn't stop me from having some "fun"! The fun part of making a card, for me, is the process...the brain storming part and trying out stamps and colors. 
 
About the card: I used Label 8 and used the second largest one to make the the layers. I tried to match the dress colors and distressed the edges with Vintage Photo. The sentiment is the new SRM Sticker ( Fancy Stickers-Birthday). The stamp I used is from Hero Arts (Starburst Lace ) and the assorted pattern paper are from Bazzill and Pink Paiselee.
It's you r Day!
Now I only wish I can make a REAL dress or purse like this!!
