JustRite Color Challenge card

Hello Crafteteers!

Today I am sharing a card I made for the current JustRite color challenge.  I tried something new and did accordion folding.  I wanted something pretty and girlish so instead of a fan or pinwheel I thought I would try to make a dress.  It took some time to come up with this dress design...and hopefully the end result looks like one!

The dress pattern is JustRite's Filigree Leaves Background stamp in Tim Holtz' Broken China ink.  I colored the leaves with Copic markers.
The background stamp behind the dress is JustRite's Paris Background stamp- also in Broken China and colored with Copics again.  All the inking along the edges and inside the Spellbinders embossed areas are Tim Holtz inks in Festive Berries and Dried Marigold.  Dried Marigold was also used to color the ribbon and dress sash.  
It is difficult to see in the photo but under the dress are elongated cotton balls to add height/shape to the dress.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great weekend!
