Marvelous Monochrome in black and white.

 I am pleased as pie with this card, I am often so self critical but I really like how this came out.  I am really happy that I learned how to use my Zing to cut the card base, and I was also able to make a nice fold line also.  This is the 1st project in the MTC Tuts group which is so helpful!  The sweet image is from Gecko Galz Marvelous Monochrome collage set.  The paper is from Shabby Cottage Studio and I used a We are Memory Keepers Sew Easy tool to make my lines of polka dots on the frame and filled them in with a Le Plume white marker.  I was so lucky to find the dots in my ribbon match the dress perfectly!  I used my Perfect Layers Rulers to get the precise layers on my card, see my sidebar for a coupon or click on my link above.  The card ran out of the house with my daughter this weekend, she loved it too, ha ha!  She made a surprise visit for her Dads birthday, we were thrilled to have her home, if only for the weekend.  
That's it, thanks for looking.  ~Diane
