Classy & Elegant Pink and Grey Dresses


I'm trying to break out of my normal style, in honor of the Moxie Fab World style week. Kim's Off the Wall Craftiness just oozed classy and elegant. I don't normally do pink, I don't normally do grey either.. so I figured if I'm moving out of my comfort zone why not go classy & elegant. I tried to dress up the dresses with the ribbon, twine and button & vellum. I keep using these adorable Stampin Up Dress forms, click here, here, here, here for some of the other fun color combinations I've done. I keep saying I have to return the stamp set to its rightful owner, but she keeps rescheduling our card date, so I'm going to keep playing with them till I have to return them. Lucy's Cards and Crazy 4 Challenges are celebrating buttons and I was convinced that I had none (it's not my normal embellishment), but then I found one at the bottom of the pen cup-- and lucky me it's pink. I'm not sure I'm a classy and elegant gal, but at least I can say I tried. Now I'll go back to my clean and graphic style.

Materials: Stampin Up dress form stamp, Stampin Up black ink, vellum, white ribbon, pink twine, pink button, Fiskars rotary scallop cutter, Stampin Up pink card stock, white art paper scrap, grey paper from Spotlight, white gel pen

Well I think you've done a fine job of classy and elegant. Monochromatic pink and grey, such a pretty combination. The dress forms themselves are transformed even into style. PS I didn't know you didn't have any buttons, I could have sent you some...
