3D Item and a matching card

Over at the Play Date Cafe, the challenge for this week is color splash.  I chose to use copper as my splash of color on a black and white background.  First I wanted to jump right in and alter something I had around the house.  I found a decorative dressform I bought years ago and had forgotten about.  It was so forgotten, it was still in the box with tags and all.  Once I covered it in a white and black taffeta, which I had purchased from JoAnn's, I went to work embellishing it.  I made a flower using some wired ribbon and cut some velvet leaves using pinking shears.  Now, I have to say, she is a cutie! So much more stylish than the original, boring black cover.  Since I can't fully break away from making cards, I created a matching card using leftovers. Now without further ado, here are my entries. 

Here are some before-and-after pictures of the dressform.

The "Cherish" card is also entered into the Card Positioning System Sketch challenge for this week.

Stamps:  Baroque Motifs by SU
Ink:  Momento Tuxedo Black
Paper:  Shimmer White, Basic Black from SU
Accessories:  Cuttle bug embossing folder, hand made ribbon flower, trim by Carolace

Thank you for taking a look,
