CASE Study #81

Over at CASE Study #81, this month's muse Laura has done it again! I couldn't help being inspired to make another card! Here is my previous card inspired by Laura.  
 Aren't these two cards stylish? I used my latest Sizzix/Hero Arts stamp and diecut set for this inspired card...

Basic Grey's Little Black Dress line is perfect for this design. The sentiment is from Making Memories stickers. I also stamped partial Newspaper Background and lightly distressed the edges with Antique Linen for the plain white card stock.
 The faux stitching on the sides are most fun to do! The Damask button is from Making Memories button set. Thanks for taking your time to visit here!
