July Dress-Up

This is my July creation for Dress Up-2010.

It started out pink, but somehow ended up a salmony/coraly colour.  Not what I had planned but there you go. I decoupaged some really pretty napkins onto a cardstock base, using a lovely template that Jenxo kindly passed on to me. Then I stamped and embossed some white script on that.
I stamped and embossed in green the waistband and hem with a lace stamp I have and added some pearls to the waistband and sleeves. I finished it off with some of those "bubble thingies" that someone told me the name of previously and I can't remember.  The finishing touch is a salmony/coraly rose that I DID NOT make, before you all compliment me on it.  I simply added some dimensional pearls.
I have no idea who made the products I used this month and am not going to lose any sleep over it. I like my dress and once I get the hanger made, it will join the other 6 in the wardrobe. (which is getting somewhat crowded) At any rate, this is my July dress, I hope you go and check out all the
