Stylish and relaxed. The perfect dress for an elegant west coast afternoon ceremony. The delicate overlay and underlay of the sensuous silk chiffon create a beautiful flowing and soft dress for today’s modern yet romantic bride. The clean lines and elegant silhouette are Hepburnesque giving the bride timeless appeal. She will look as radiant and stylish today as she will when she wears this at her 50th wedding anniversary – truly a treasure.

Christmas Elegance

December 31, 2006 at 8:08 pm (Cards, Classy, Discussion, Formal, Mom, Paper fashions)

The combination of Christmas morning and the Christmas dinner is displayed in this colourful outfit. The pattern on the skirt is a lovely paisley design on tissue paper postioned so the eye flows along the torso. The bright red napkin top and underskirt creates excitement for the eye as it moves over the figure. Accents of gold on the purse, top and underskirt add eye appeal. The lovely turquoise necklace adds an element of surpise to complete your holiday outfit. mom.jpg

So many beautiful styles to choose from!  Finding the perfect dress is almost harder than the perfect groom.

I made this card to send to my friend who recently got engaged.  I think she’ll like the one on the right the best, it didn’t show up too well in the picture, but it’s got a bit of a texture to it, I used torn tissues to make the fabric.  I’ll try to post a craftorial about my torn tissue technique.
