A template and a Dare!

My first challenge today is one of Sue's fabby templates on the Just Bex forum.

....and for this fab snowy day something to keep you busy a template you know what to do!! flip it shrink it etc etc The catch is that you must use something SHARP and some LACE.
The dress image was stamped for me about three years ago by a friend. I used so many of the images and promptly lost them and found four when I was sorting my drawers (!) the other week. The image has been mounted onto burgundy and silver pearlescent card. The paper is by Fancy Pants. My 'lace' is the broderie anglais round the greeting and my 'something sharp' is the silver brad in the middle of the Cuttlebug flower.
My next card is for the DCM Little Extra This is today's remit Now this weeks mid week dare is inspired by Rachel and is called 'Folded' ! This is not folds in the card blank itself, but rather folds ON the card- whether it be some kind of paper folding technique or folded embellishments or even just a folded over message of some type.
So here is my card

Ta Da!!! My very first waterfall card :) so lots of folds. Papers are Pink Petticoat again and the stamp was a freebie a couple of years ago from Anita's with a bit of added bling.
Back soon, thanks for visiting.

Well done with the waterfall cards (keep promising myself I'll make one but still haven't) and love the one for the template challenge - good idea for the 'sharp' bit.

If that's your first waterfall card, it's amazing.

I've never tried one myself but yours is very stylish
