Briar Rose

WOW!!!  5 posts in 4 days...I'm doin' good!  The girls are napping, Rob is relaxing and I'm gettin' crafty.  This card I made for the current ETSY Inspired Challenge.  I love ETSY and the retro items at LoverDover are down right adorable!  We have our fall trip to Disney planned, and she has some fantastic items I could pick up for my girls...
This card was inspired  by this dress.  For some reason it talked to me.  Not my typical asthetic...  This is what I created to pay homage to it.
