New Dress - New Shoes - New Dies!

It's that lovely time of the week when our Choccy pops a new post up and the theme for this week's challenge over at the OSAAT Challenge blog is 'New '. New little one, new home, new job, anything new just for you, I splashed out on some new Memory Box dies

To win this week's prize of 3 sets of die cuts from our  fab sponsor, Crimson Cloud, you must use an image from Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps. All other entries that do not use a Stitch Bear Digital Stamp will be entered into a draw for a $3 prize that you will be able to spend in the on-line store.

This smashing image from Sylvie that you can find here at Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps store is called Oriental Lady.  She is definitely wearing a new dress with beautiful red shoes to match and showing some leg too.

I've paper pieced her dress to give her figure more definition and coloured it with a Promarker Poppy coloured pen. I've mounted her onto plain and scalloped Nestabilities ovals.  The flowers on the outside of the ovals are my new Memory Box dies and the squiggles are the thin off cuts from the flower die cuts, they were too nice to throw away.
