Fussy & Fancy Challenge #155 Fashion

Well here is the first Fussy and Fancy challenge of 2016, hosted by the talented Tone who has chosen the very exciting theme 'Fashion'. Now I'm not the most fashionable of ladies, I dress more for the weather especially when it comes to walking our dog Jasper. But my guilty pleasure over the last 6 years has been Downton Abbey which sadly finished here in the UK at Christmas, part of it's attraction was the wonderfully elegant fashion of the Edwardian era.
So when it came to creating my offering I knew I would have to use some of my treasured Graphic 45 papers from the Ladies Diary collection ... I have had it for a while now but just couldn't bring myself to use it. Anyway the time had come so here was what I did, very simple because the papers speak for themselves:

There are so many beautiful fashion plates in this G45 collection I could have used but this is my favourite, I love the silky jade o f her dress with the touch of soft pink.

I hope you will join in with us again this time, as always we would love to see your cards, mixed media, boxes anything you have made which fits in with the theme 'Fashion'.  Everyone has an equal chance of winning because the overall winner is chosen randomly, then Tone as hostess will chose her Top 5. You can find out more about the challenge and how to upload your work here

I look forward to seeing your work and leaving a comment for you, but for now I think I need a cup of tea so Bye for now love and hugs, Annie xxx


  1. Morning Annie, I love your design and like you I adore Graphic 45 papers...and they are just perfect for this challenge...especially when combined with such fabulous flowers and embellishments.
    It was a very cold dog walk this morning...and as I put on all those dog walking cloths I did laugh ...not trendy fashion at all...!!!
    Have a lovely weekend...keep

  2. Annie I love your creation with all those beautiful added details. I love this paper too and almost used this beautiful image myself (great minds think gorgeous!!
