Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge 45 – Borders and Edgers

Hi there blog ladies,

I am over the moon thrilled this week!  Sandy sent me an email asking if I would like to be a Guest Designer this week.  Well, let me say that it took me about 2 seconds to say YES.

So there I sat trying to come up with an idea when my Niece came over for a visit.  My Mother-In-Law made her a princess dress for one of her dolls and also made the same dress for her.  She was so thrilled to be all dressed up and wearing the same dress as her little doll.  There was a pattern for the doll dress so I decided to make my own based on it.

I used 6 layers of cones to create the dress and I scalloped the edges to give the layers a bit of dimension.  I then alternated between the 2 different borders to create the dress and finished it off with a bit on Tulle on the bottom.  Of course, I also had to add a flower!  I used Cuties 2 to make a lovely little flower to finish it off.  When I was done and looked at the dress I thought “What good is a princess dress without a Tiara?” so I made one as well.

Here is the finished project:

For this project I used the following dies:

DL129 – Border Carnivale

B132 – Flower Chain Border

B150 – Cuties 2
