Pretty Woman

Doesn't this remind you of the red dress in Pretty Woman. I loved that movie but it was definitely upstaged by Runaway Bride.

This card was made for the Princess. She's the only person I know that can pull off a dress like this with panache. Wish that I could!

The card uses Basic Black, Real Red, Whisper White and some DP scraps that I desperately wish I could get more of. The dress is in fact paper pieced. The red rhinestones were to try to balance the card. Somehow it didn't seem finished without them. Earrings perhaps?

I'm debating whether to add a sentiment or to leave as is. What do you think?

Challenges this card meets:
Daring Cardmakers - Rubies for July (Yeah! My birthday month!)
Creative Inspirations - Paper Piecing
Pile it On - Favourite things (favourite movie inspirations, given to favourite Princess, uses pearls and the colour red)
Everybody Art - Birthday
