A card for my BFF

Good Morning!  I hope you are all recovering from a fabulous weekend.  It was pretty quiet around here.  Just me and hubby and we definitely enjoyed it.  I have a card I made for my  BFF, Jocie.  I wanted to share and enter in a couple challenges before I pop it in the mail.  We've been missing each other alot lately and the phone calls just don't seem to cover the miles so I thought I'd send her a little reminder of how special she is to me.

I used most of this 12X12 paper on another card and kept cutting it to save this mannequin.  I knew I'd use it for something.  I sewed the pearl strip on to the top of the tulle and then attached it so you could still see the quality of the paper.  I hit a few of the beads (just the green ones) with glitter and made the pearl border at the bottom.  Jocie loves vintagey stuff and I know she'll love this one. 

Challenges Entered:
7Kids College Fund - Challenge myself (first time sewing on a card)
Stamp-N-Doodle - Use a dress somewhere (I created one)
Crafty Purple Frog - Distressing

Have a great week!
