PRETTY IN PEARLS


A posting for the PPA#58 challenge. PPA's inspiration photo is fabulous, who doesn't remember Breakfast at Tiffany's with Audrey Hepburn, such a classic. I envisioned this gorgeous dress trimmed in pearls hanging on a hanger just waiting for Audrey. A little black CS for matting and a piece of striped ribbon gathered and topped off with a thinner black velvet ribbon. Of course I had to finish the inside with a pair of red shoes also trimmed with a pearl.
I hope you enjoy looking at the card as much as I did creating it using retired S.U. set called Haute Couture (still one of my all-time favorite sets). Thanks for looking!
