I decided to play along with Greta's Challenge.  She is celebrating her 100th post.
I'm also adding this to

This is the photo we were to use as our inspiration.
I was inspired by the colors on the lovely dress.

Since I really enjoy making "Tag Cards", I knew I would make a tag card,
because it sort of resembles the long dress.  
The Hero Arts-Pom Pom Flower is clear embossed.  
Various distress inks are used to ink the background. 
The PTI-Dress Form and the bottom strip are clear embossed with the HA-Envelope Pattern.
Thanks, Greta, for the FUN challenge.

This is great, Martha! The dress form is a great accent and I love that the brown strip at the bottom mirrors the border along the dress hem. As always... a beautiful tag!
