Its that time again folks!!! Its my July (already?) dress for the lovely MARGARET'S DRESS IT UP CHALLENGE! Its carnival week down here in our little town so I thought along the lines of a suitable frock for Carmen Miranda....though without the fruit hahahaha!!! Once again I used the super-talented and super-inspirational Gini's template that she kindly sent me, thanks sweetie XXX
Ages ago I got a grab bag of ribbons. You know the type....you look through & find that only one or two are actually to your taste & the rest is just NOT!!!! Being a hoarder, I kept the wide patterned ones and one of these came in for this dress!!! I gathered it down the middle before I stuck it on my base with a few sead beads. The base has been tortured with distress inks & embossing.
Do pop over to Margarets blog to have a look at all the other wonderful dresses that have been made!!! Lots of HUGS XXX
