Oyster Blush Again

Yes, it's THOSE papers again!  I can't get enough of Papermania's Oyster Blush papers at the moment, I love the soft colours, pretty patterns and lustrous sheen, they're a nice weight to work with too.
 I made the stepper card using my mega handy B-C-E template, then matted up with Oyster Blush papers and a matching scalloped oval notelet.
I borrowed Mum's Xcut Dressing Room die set to make the embellishments, I cut the dress form three times, once from kraft and twice from paper, so I could create the pleats in the skirt section.  I added clear glass micro beads to the bodice and along the hemline so that these areas look beaded.  I finished the dress with a die cut bow.  The bag and shoes and butterfly were cut from glitter card for a glam look.
I stamped the sentiment with a Papermania stamp, in brown ink for a soft look and finished off with ribbon, a bow and some peach pearls.
