Ballerina Dress - Cards & Things Color Challenge 77

This week's challenge with Cards & Things  is to use the following colors:  basic black, basic gray, so saffron and old olive.  I made a card which was inspired by Laura Lipe here using the colors for this challenge and at the same time making a birthday card from my grand daughter, who's birthday it is next month.

The card base is Basic black, with a layer of Old Olive.  The Whisper White layer on top of that was embossed with the Framed Tulip embossing folder and sponged with So Saffron ink.
Dress: Bodice of dress was punched with Old Olive using the Tab Punch.  The 1" circle punch was used to make the neckline, around which I put small pearls.  I tied a 1/8" basic black taffeta ribbon around the waist.
For the skirt, I used the Blossoms Petal Punch.  The small petals were punched with So Saffron to make the top layer of the skirt, & Basic Gray sponged on Vellum was punched with the larger petals for the lower skirt. I put a pearl on each large petal.
I used Laura's idea for the punch layering for the sentiment- wide oval in Olive Green, 1 3/8" circle in So Saffron and the sentiment in Whisper White with the Scallop Oval punch.

Stamp: Bring on the Cake
Inks: So Saffron, Basic Gray
Papers: Basic Black, Old Olive, Whisper White, So Saffron, Vellum
Accessories: Framed Tulips embossing folder, Tab punch, Blossoms Petal Punch, Wide Oval Punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, 1" circle punch, Scallop oval punch, Pearls, 1/8" Basic Black Taffeta ribbon
