Another Challenging Challenge.

You know, I'm happy when a challenge challenges me in new ways.
This time I had to create a patterned paper with stamps, which sounds interesting since papers are difficult to find here (unless you order them from somewhere) and not so cheap (plus shipping costs...).
I had an idea in my mind of colors and theme and I had a go.

Here's the card:
I had just received a new set of Lawn Fawn stamps and I was looking forward to using them. I made my patterned paper using a dusty pink ink and the flower stamp of the Sew Lovely set on a grey paper.
I had already stamped the dress form on white paper and the dress only on a patterned paper (another "new" thing for me) and I wanted to keep this grey-pink color scheme.
I was lucky enough to find the perfect pink tone for the ribbon in my stash and a metal charm which is perfect for the theme.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Lawnscaping Challenge # 7 which says "make your own patterned paper with stamps",
Papertake Weekly Challenge which says "Anything Goes"
Sir Stampalot April Challenge which says "Ladies and Fashion"

I have another challenging challenge waiting for me and this time it'll be even more difficult...
