Six-Sided Fusion

This card is a challenge it wasn't a challenge to make, I made it to enter a challenge......This Fusion Challenge: French Twist.
Here is the inspiration.......

I love that you can choose either the photo, the sketch or a combination of both.  For my card, I've chosen to combine the two ideas.   I've taken inspiration from the photo in a few ways.  Some like the colours and bow are obvious, but I wonder if you know why I stamped the bottom of the card with the floral image from Six-Sided Sampler?

I've lined up the image repeatedly to replicate the texture of the tulle that is visible on the top of the skirt.    I also love that the antique brad detail matches the detail on the stamped image....I discovered this quite by chance when looking at which brads I had left in my container.  Not only did the colour match, be Stampin' Up! have co-ordinated the accessories as well.  How awesome is that?????
Anyway,'s the full card. 
Stamp Sets: Six-Sided Sampler, Banner Banter
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Smoky Slate
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Smoky Slate
Other: White Organza Ribbon, Antique Brads, Stamp-a-ma-jig (very important to line up the hexagons in a uniform pattern!!) (Yes I am OCD!!!)
Happy Stamping.....Manda
