OK it's official I'm addicted to flowers! I've done it again but just couldn't help myself! Our mission this week is to make good use of these lovely dress punches from Woodware & the frilly skirt of the dress just begged to be a frilly petal!! I began by punching a 2" circle from card to use as the base & to work onto. Then punch 8 pieces from blue paper using the largest punch (3"). Cut away the top of the bodice from each dress & score from the "waist" to the hem to make the dress frill. Edge with a blue inkpad & attach to the circle of card as shown in the photo below. Place the  remaining 4 pieces between the first 4. Now repeat the process using the 2" punch placing the petals in the centre of the first layer. Punch a 1" circle from caramel card & sculpt to give it a domed effect.add some dots of Liquid Pearls
The card blank is a piece of A4 cut in half (portrait) & then I scored about 2" to wrap at the back to re assemble the card.  The background was made from the Perfect Prints pad stamped with a sentiment from Little Messages & add a bow of white organza ribbon.  
As you'll notice I have used the 1" dress punch to make a frilly border along the right edge of the card blank using the same method as for the flowers. To finish I cut some strips of blue paper with the pinking blade of the Fingerguard trimmer & added some blue Elements. Voila-one frilly flower!!
