DCM - Die Cuts

As you may know, my mojo had walked out where cards were concerned! I tried to make something for the mid week extra, but although I had my list of B's & all the bits to hand, I couldn't make a design from them!!
I have no idea where this has come from, must have been after I pulled my latest layout out of the hat, all about Sindy & her fabulous amount of fashion!
Anyway, it has 2 double die cut flowers & 2 single die cut flowers. The bodice was cut from a template as I don't have the big shot die for it.
Papers are (background) Papermania, inspirations warm tones, (flowers & bodice) DCWV, Once Upon a Time.
Papermania buttons, brads & pearl brad. Flower for skirt, from a dear friend in Australia. Stamps by Memory Makers Collection & Hampton Arts.

Love your card, especially the bodice and flower skirt - what a clever idea! And I like your Sindy layout, too, lots of fun!
Thanks for stopping by my blog, hope you won't be stressed at work for much longer! Never good when you don't even have the time or energy to make stuff. Take care!

Sindy comes to the rescue - good old Sindy, and she would love to add this gorgeous dress to her already bulging wardrobe.

I also LOVE your Sindy LO below, Sindy brings back so many childhood memories.

Beautiful work Paula.
