Now onto my card.

I was really stumped what to do for a paper dress, since I figured I had used up my creative mojo on the Paper Doily card ;-)  but then I remembered, I had used the beautiful bodice sticker in a slightly different card I had made for a girlfriend's birthday.

this is a slightly formal dress - the blue 'dress' part is a shimmer paper that does not show up in the photo :(

and here is a more summery, fun party dress feel to it.

The papers I have used on these cards I have had in my collection since I first started cardmaking - around 2008.  The stickers, cardstock and papers were from Blue Edge Crafts.

I am still in de-stash mode, and have been attempting to sort through my stuff - the craft room looks like a bomb hit it - so my motivation is a bit low - I seem to be only making cards 'when I absolutely have to' and I really don't like feeling that way :(  I am sure it won't be long until my mojo returns fully - but, it better return this week as I have a birthday card for my nephew to make ;-)

Pop on over to the UnstampaBelles blog to see what the rest of the DT have created!
