hero, dress, lady

This card came together quickly as no stamping and coloring were involved and I had already cut out this lady from a sheet with many retro and vintage style ladies.
The sentiment is cut from a DP with different sentiments, but I thought this one has something ‘womanly hero like’ about it and I also thought with today being the International Women’s day it would be suitable for this card.
The lamp post is cut with a Memory Box die and the star stencil is also from them.
Isn’t the lady’s dress amazing? It has a cut that would make me look gigantic, but I so love this feminine style from past times.

This card is for:
City Crafter Challenge - #402 Be Your Own HERO
Shopping Our Stash - #344 National Dress Day
Allsorts - #457 Ladies Only

Amazing card Pia, well done with your bit and pieces without stamps! :) This retro girl is very beautiful, as well her dress! All the details you added make the card perfectly balanced!
Happy Woman Day!

Hi Pia, This card is very appropriate for today. The sentiment is so right for International Womens Day. Aside from that I love your design

Wonderful card, Pia. This vintage lady is fabulous. I remember my elder sister wearing dresses like this. She was tall and slim and looked great in these styles.
Your card is lovely. The lamp post is great combine with this image and i like the stars too.

Stunning card Pia, love that dress, I had one just like it in the early 60's!!! Sorry for the lack of commenting I haven't blogged for ages just been sticking to FB and Instagram. Are you on either of these?

Mimi said...

Hi Pia! Yay, I love it when you come to Shopping Our Stash! This card is ab-fab... I love the dress. I would totally wear it! (Well, I would like to think I would "totally wear it," but I am truly a jeans-and-t-shirt kinda gal... haha), but I do love the style. Your eye for balance is eternally perfect. Good to see you. BTW, I recently saw a dress that was Queen Maud of Norway's, and I thought of you :)
