My One Layered Birthday Card

This Unity challenge just seemed to be what I needed--a one layered birthday card! One layer means only a card base with no extra paper layers but embellished any way I wanted. Since I couldn't add layers, I thought I would take them away! I seem to be into frames and windows right now. So here's my card:
Simply, I stamped the dress form from the April kit of the month in Adirondack espresso and used a combination of oval nestabilities to remove the stamped image and Cuttlebug embossing folders and borders to add texture to my white card. The form is suspended with SU silver elastic cord and dressed with scraps of organdy and satin ribbon I had in my stash. I added bling with Stamping Bella cotton candy bonbons and Glamour Dust to the pearls that were lightly coloured with copics.

I'm thrilled with how this turned out and plan to give it to the lovely Annie who is busy right now sewing my daughter's (and about 40 other daughters') dance costumes.
