Shabby Chic Dress Form Card

Hello again! The weather is just beautiful at the moment and I certainly hope to get active in my poor garden today to do some weeding and enjoy the fine weather while it lasts. The card  am sharing with you today is a dress form card. The design follows the latest challenge from The Shabby Tea Room. 
You are asked to create a card or project inspired by the photo using PINK, RIBBON/LACE/TULLE and a FLOWER!

I have been drawn to creating cards that feature dresses and dress forms lately.....excited by this challenge!
In the past, I have used a paper template to create my dress forms, but I recently purchased the die from Tim Holtz which is what I used here. I used a brown cardstock and ran it through my Big Kick. I inked the edges to give it an aged look. I ran it through the Big Kick again, this time with some patterned paper. I trimmed the top and bottom, inked it up and attached to the brown form using foam tape. To create the skirt I cut some seam binding, a little bit wider than the waist of the dress form. I cut strips of tulle and cheese cloth approx 1cm x 8cm and attached it to the seam binding with fabric glue. Once I had enough layers, I attached to seam binding to the dress form. I attached the daisy trim and added adhesive pearls to the centres. I cut a strip of ribbon to add a bow but then experimented with it and decided to add it to the skirt as another layer.

Some flowers and a sentiment complete my card. Here are some more close ups...
