SAF-Make It Work

Make It Work Challenge
The last challenge of SAF is all about using up some of the bits and pieces (and maybe even rejects!) left laying on your table at the end of the day!  
I started out making this card with the idea the dress would be my focal point and I would  create my own background by masking and stamping some images in light gray.  Then I painted in the silver embossed dress with a too- dark color blue that could not be lightened up no matter how much water I added :-( 
Tossing it in the trash, it was truly a reject!

I used pale blue water color paint on my 'revised' dress and went with a sparkly designer paper background instead of the DIY plan.  The sentiment is from PTI Embellishments stamp set.
