Vintage Take on the Same Card!

Good morning! As promised I have a second take on Monday's card.  This version is much more my style.....shabby.  ;)  I used a fluffy pink yarn as my "thread."  I used this gorgeous Prima flower, a doily, ribbon and a couple of stick pins to finish it off.  It was a fairly simple card to make, and I was happy with the results.
Cort's prom is not until the beginning of May, but last year we waited a bit too long and the dresses were picked over.  So I am glad we went early enough to find a dress that we all could agree on.  (My husband has strong opinions about what she should wear!) ;)
I love the shading of blue, the tulle, and the sequins.  It is a color that works for her. 
I have to laugh because my husband said to me, "Now we just need to go to Charmin' Charlies for accessories."  LOL! Now that's an involved Dad! ;)
I am keeping it short and sweet today.  I have to shovel all of the very wet snow off my van and driveway before heading to work.  : O
Have a great day!!!

Beautiful card! I love that you used yarn. Great touch!

And that dress is awesome. She's going to look beautiful! I think she's blessed to have her Daddy help with choosing the dress. That's a lovely story. You must be a proud Mama.
