Glamour and Glitz

With this card, I am joining in two challenges:

Less is More - 95 - recipe: Glamour and Glitz
Oldie  But a Goodie - Anything Goes

When I think of Glamour and Glitz, the very LAST thing I think about is "Clean and simple". My instinct is to pile on the bling! But of course glamour means fashion too, and I remembered some old peel-offs I bought when I first started cardmaking about 15 years ago.

Isn't it funny, as crafting newbies there is a temptation to rush out and buy armfuls of peel offs. Then you get them home and wonder what the heck to do with them! Once you are an established crafter, you find that the ones you use most often are borders, corners and words, yet you can't bring yourself  to part with those early purchases.

So this dress is definitely an oldie but a goodie. In fact I think it is a great credit to the manufacturer  that after all this time the adhesive on it still works as well as if it had been brand new.

Actually everything on this card is at least a year old. The grey card I used for the band across the middle was also one of my first purchases, I just KNEW it was going to come in handy one day. The paper I used for the dress was from a prize I won from a craft magazine last year, and the pink glitter card from a bundle I won last year. The shoes are from a RAK I received the Christmas before last and the sentiment was a freebie in a craft magazine absolutely years ago. Everything comes in useful if you hang on to it for long enough!
