TRR #11 'Happy Birthday'

I'm hosting the challenge this fortnight over at The Ribbon Reel and I've chosen this inspiration photo for us all .....

...and ask that you create a card or project for your inspiration PLUS it must have a BIRTHDAY theme AND use RIBBON/LACE and/or TWINE.

Here's my card..

I've recently bought some Tim Holtz Dies and absolutely love them! I think this dressmakers doll is fab, as well as this On the Edge die, which I used to shape the bottom of my card.

I'm not sure what I did before seam binding, I still use it on most of my cards. I started with some pink crochet lace and layered with chalk white seam binding. I created a double bow before tying a button with button twine to the centre and finished with a couple of pearl pins.

Don't forget to check out the rest of TRR design team's creations.

Supplies used:
Cardstock - MME Lost & Found 2 Blush from the ribbon reel
Ribbons - Pink Crochet Lace, Chalk White Seam Binding, Ivory Button Twine from the ribbon reel
Stamps - WMS Fancy Phrases
Other - 25mm Rosy Pink Tea Rose and White Pearl Pins from the ribbon reel, Tim Holtz Dies, Nesties, Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink

So light and lovely, Keilly! I just love how you incorporated that dress form, and your that edge die is gorgeous! And any card with a speck of gingham is perfect in my book...I see it on the sweet tag :)!
