Time for a new challenge at ArtWithNoBoundaries! The theme is Fashion...get out all those those sewing baskets and bits and bobs and create something that express some fashion fever.

I've used the new Lace Dress Form from CSDesigns. And peeking from behind is the Diamond Dot Mini Background also from the Express Yourself Collection. I just love this background.

The inspiration for my card is the design boards used by fashion designers where they pin there fabric swatches, and make their sketches. I used my pinking shears on the sentiment and the fabric swatches.

Here is my card at another angle, showing the 3-D effect.

And here is a close-up of the dress form:

The fabric swatches:

I hope you like my card and that you will join us in the challenge!

Rene, After seeing your Fashionista Example on Art With No Boundaries, I have been waiting with anticipation for you to post it to your own blog so I could come and tell you how much I love it. The design board idea is such a fantastic idea and gives your card a very stylish professional look. It's fabulous.
