Guest Design for City Crafter Challenge #77

Hi there! I am very excited to share my guest design project over City Crafter Challenge with you today. Thanks to the challenge in July (see here), I was awarded to get a guest design spot. So here I am. The challenge theme for this week is 3D project. We were provided with a template generously sponsored by Creations by AR. If you have never tried a template, it's time to give it a try! It's super easy-just print and cut. Here is my dress card that I came up with.
Birthday Girl
About the card:
1. Re-size the template and print it out on white card stock, then cut out.
2. Emboss the bottom part of the dress with Hero Arts Flower Medley in white, then color the flowers with distress inks with small sponges/daubers.
3. Embellish the dress with gems, ribbons and Perfect Pearl Dimensional liquid
4. Add SRM Sticker (Birthday Girl) and attach with a tooth pick.

Hope you check out the DT over City Crafter Challenge and perhaps give the challenge a try! Thanks so much for stopping by!
