classy & fabulous...

Happy Monday!

Welcome to the E.A.D Designs Blog Hop!
{it officially starts at 10 am EST}

You should have hopped over here from Jenn's blog:


{btw, don't forget about the ginormous Tria Marker give-a-way {x5!}...}


I had a BALL putting this vintage card together!  The dressform is from the E.A.D Designs Vintage Rub-Ons set...seriously, you gotta try out the E.A.D Designs Rub-Ons...they are thee best...easy...thick and opaque!


I kept adding tons of stuff to this card and really like how it turned out.  Can you read the quote?

A girl should be two things:

Classy & Fabulous

Coco Chanel

I'm also linking up to the Moxie Fab World Challenge: 


Whew, those pleats...I pleated, pierced and then hand stitched each 'tier'...funny how an idea can become so incredibly labor intensive:)

The paper is MME's Haunted line...the harlequin pattern is flocked...ooohhhh...gotta love that!  Isn't the ZVA bling simply spectacular?!!!  Perfect for Paige's latest challenge over on the Cards blog...BLING!  This is also my 'whimsical' take on Card Patterns 87.

A ginormous woot woot to our fabbie October Guest Designer...Julie Tucker-Wolek...thanks girl for a fab month!!!!

Your next hop is over to the superb Stephanie's:

  3. Omigosh Amy, I can imagine the amount of "labour" you put into making this fantabulous dress! If you aren't already a seamstress I think you'd make a fabulous one!
