Those Craft Challenges entries are to blame!!!

Oh Dear! I really shouldnt look at Challenges!!
I just had to do this one, sorry ladies I do apologize in advance for swearing!

Not my fault!!!  Its theirs!! They shouldnt ask if people want to put a Christmas spin on a challenge this soon after Christmas!!!

Ok, firstly, I am somewhat limited in the way of every day stamps, Christmas- shed loads, digi's- thousands, but I did think that to fulfill this challenge I should Stamp it. So, look though my Tub of "everyday" stamps.....
Hmmn, not much there that came under the heading of  Sweet Treats, apart from a dress, some shoes, and handbags.
Ok Dress won, Its actually from a set of 50 Stamps I ordered from Aston Trading, on Amazon, and I have no idea who the designer was, but they came in a lovely wooden chest.
So Dress, pastels, and treats...........ok.......... Born to Shop papers 6x6 by Docrafts to the rescue! some lovely pastel designs, which I could mangle into a changing room! One formed the background, and one of the yellow designs was chopped up to make some "swing changing room doors". The the same set of papers were used to Stamp the dress design in Brilliance Lightning Black, and I cut the dress out. I formed a coat hanger from a piece of Florists wire, and stuck the dress to it using a Glue dot.
Half the door was stuck down on one side using a tape pen, the other half was mounted along the hinge edge with some Foam Tape, for depth and dimension, then I stuck the dress to the mounted door making sure the top of the coat hanger was just behind the top of the door. A bit of ribbon, 2 pink pins, and a yellow pin, and the "sentiment", Which I printed of, cut using Spellbinders Labels 23, on some colour fade card, and edged with Promarker Rose Pink. Sorry but you really shouldnt allow me to be quite so free!!
