Winter Fashionistas

Have you been able to play along in the Moxie Ruffle Challenge yet? I thought I would create a couple of winter fashionistas.
I love skirts that have a flirty ruffle on the bottom (I have a cute black one) so I thought....why not on a card?
The bottom is a sheer ribbon that I ran through my sewing machine in a basting stitch so that I could simply pull the threads to gather. I also added a lace trim (Melissa Frances).
The color scheme is very soft (cool palette of winter) and this Melissa Frances paper captured the "mood" I was looking for perfectly!
The snowflake was done on acetate with my spellbinder die and then airbrushed with YG93 to bring out the soft green.
The stamps are from the ATC set "Haute Couture" by Cornish Heritage Farms.
I thought I would ground my image with a little holiday sparkle (Martha Stewart glitter that is).

Here is a close up of another "ruffle" I created with some basic grey ribbon.
Want to play along...the challenge you can find HERE.

See you tomorrow for Taylor's Sketch the new girls of the sketch crew!
