Paper dress on a tag

I've been enjoying looking at paper dresses on Pinterest for a while now. I think they are so pretty! So I was delighted when my online art group, AAWA, An Affair With Art wanted us to do a paper dress on a tag for a mingle. I purchased a dress stamp at my favorite local store, Whimsey's. I loved the stamp but made it a little bigger by adding extra skirt layers behind the dress. I just love this quote from Oscar Wilde. I made the rack from a paper clip and the background colors are Dylusions inks.  I thought that little piece of loopy trim was the perfect finishing touch!

You've made a fabulous dress from this stamp, very ornate, I like the sequins and the tiny hanger.
Thanks for noticing Fluffie, she was getting quite upset as very few people mentioned her.
(I couldn't find your email address, that's why I'm mentioning it here).
