The card that was almost dirty!

Most of you know this month's Dirty Dozen theme is FASHION! Well, I had this idea floating around and asked my friend Shirley (squirrellyshirley) to borrow her Pattern of Friendship. Well, the time got away from me and I only had 1/2 a card done by the time the deadline creeped up on me! So, here it is...the card that was almost Dirty!!

Rememeber paper dolls? I may be dating myself here, but I just loved playing with paper dolls when I was a girl. So, I had an idea to make a paper doll and some clothes for her. I stamped the dress onto some coordinating patterned paper and hand drew the "clothing tags". I was inspired from my old tin of my grandma's buttons. They appear on this card in abundance and one even has the old thread still in it! I stamped the BG panel in Aida Cloth tone on tone and the sentiment is from Hanna Stamps, What would Hanna Say? I think she would say "Let's PLAY!"

Card deets:
Stamps - pattern of friendship, aida cloth, things Hanna would say
Paper - ruby red, river rock, groovy guava, white, patterned paper by Cosmo Cricket
Accessories - grandma's buttons, river rock double stitched ribbon, corner rounder, paper piercing tool
