Gorgeous Gown

I have had these Xcut dies since they came out but have not used them, like so many other things I have!  I embossed the top layer with a feather embossing folder.  The image is from a Debbie Moore cd, Venetian Moments, which I decoupaged and added some glitter to her gown.  This card has come out blue in the photo but in real life it is purple!

I am entering the following challenges:

"Gorgeous Gowns" at CD Sunday
"Patterned Paper" at Craftyhazelnuts patternedpaper
"Fancy and Feminine" at Chocolate Coffee Cards
"Anything Goes" at Penny's Paper Crafty
"Make it Feminine" at Fan-Tastic Tuesday


  1. I love the scene created using the dies and also the feather embossing on metallic(?). This is a lovely card.

  2. Wonderful card , love the fact that you created a scene you can imagine being at a masked ball. The feather embossing adds to this illusion love it.

  3. Wow what a fantastic card Michelle, I love those die cuts they go so well with the wonderful image you've used. Great embossing folder too.
