A touch of glamour......

Morning all just popping in to show you my card for this weeks LIM challenge. I meant to enter last week but the week disappeared so quickly and I was busy making cards for forthcoming birthdays.
Anyway here is the criteria for this week:

The challenge this week is a 
Recipe 
and for that concoction we would like you to include
SOME WIRE
We realise that this is quite a tricky one, so if there's no way you can produce a card with
actual wire on it, an image or die-cut depicting wire will also qualify!


I used freebie stamps from Creative Stamped magazine, gold embossed the dress and used glitter ep for the clapper stamp.
Watercolour pencil and water brush to colour the dress. I bent some wire for the hanger and added some gems at the neckline.

Hope you all have a crafty week!

Gorgeous card! I'd been thinking about a wire coathanger but I don't have a dress image as perfectly suited to CAS as yours is!

Inspired by the Oscars? The moment is right, as is this classy style, that's for sure. The dress hanger wire is SO clever and a fabulous little detail!
