So Very Stylish.......

......That's how I would describe this month's stamp set from Creative Expressions.
We are working with the Gala Event stamp set and I decided to go for a very classy black and white theme.
I embossed my background using the large polka dot mask, to coordinate with the dots on the dress. Each dress was stamped onto black and white paper, cut out and added to the card blank. I added some black and white CANDI to embellish each corner. The sentiment is also from the same stamp set.
For added interest and dimension I have included a small pearl and a jewel to each dress along with mini coat hangers.
I added three dimensional flowers cut using the Spellbinders Blossom One die, cut from black and white paper. The white flower has been sponged with a little black soot Distress Ink. For further interest I have also added black bead pins.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Enjoy your weekend. Tracy x x
