the Clothes Form

Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #63 (MMSC63)

It has taken me forever to make time for this card and then forever to make it! LOL I think I actually worked on this for just over 2days.  You know work on a part of it, then leave, come back and mess around a bit more on the focal image ....then leave.....then come back.....then leave.....  Finally, this morning I reached the point of putting it together and life got in my way! Can you even believe that, life stepped right up and took me away from my play time!!!  Urghhh!

 Anyone who has made any type of craft can identify with this scenario! The most important thing is that I finished it and now I am sharing it with you!  The body form image is from Priscilla Styles, it was one of the freebies on CDAC. If you haven't taken the time to check this site out you are missing some outstanding digital companies, some wonderful chatter, some amazing tutorials and a chance to share your art. In fact the rose on this card was made from a tutorial available there. Go take a tour and I am sure you will be wondering why you hadn't gone before.  Leave me some comments and will give you the particulars of this card! Hope you are all staying cool, here in the piedmont of NC it is sweltering, humid and unbearable!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Donna! Great card! Love the colorcombo! It is so warm and rich. I also like the almost animalprint you have added to the torso - looks very cool!

Thanks for joining Midnight Madness Challenge (and for beeing such a good advocate for the CDAC!). I hope to see your great work again next week!

This is great!!! Love the paper piecing! I think I know how to do it, and it seems like a lot of printing and fussing. No wonder it took 2 days, lol.

Oh my gosh, Donna...this is gorgeous!!!
Listen, if I were you, I would submit that to
the Dress Up 2010 challenge...

If you go to my blog and scroll down, you will see my Paris dress and my story about it and a link to the party....
I already made my dresses for Aug, Sept,Oct,Nov, and Dec! It's SOOO fun!
Don't mind me..I just think these dresses are so precious....
Also, on the Dress Up 2010 blog, there's a girl who entered her dresses and her link says "Frosted Petunia's"....She's a doll and she made a closet for the dresses--it's unreal!!

Yours is SOOO beautiful that I bet they'd love it over there!!!
P.S. The Paris dress is on my whimsical musings blog at:

and I've got their link on that post so you can link your up if you want to!

This is very beautiful. I can see why it took so long to complete, very worth the time you put into it. It is a masterpiece.
