CASE Card with Dressmaker

This card is inspired by the CASE card over at Inkspirational. I took inspiration from the dressmaker and the layers of rectangles.
I used a Spellbinders die for the dressmaker. To give it a metal feel I covered it with Platinum colored Ultra thick embossing enamel and heat embossed. Since the ladies on the background DP has dresses with spots I wanted to give my dressmaker a similar look. I also wrapped a bit of tulle around it and added a black bow as a belt. I mounted the dressmaker on foam onto a panel of black and kraft paper to create a layered effect.

I enter this card into these challenges:
1) Inkspirational - #12 CASE
2) Pile It On - Dots
3) 613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes
4) Happy Campers - #13 Add Dimension
5) Charisma Cardz - #11 Die Cuts
6) Paper Crafting Journey - Ribbon or Lace
7) Craft Your Passion - Ribbons or Lace
8) My Craft Spot - Embossing or Glossy Accents
9) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

Very classy Pia! I love the background print and you worked wonders with the dressmaker. From the picture I would have thought it was metal. Great use of the tulle and bow. Another beautiful creation! As always, we love having you play with us at Inkspirational!
