CD Sunday - Gorgeous Gowns

Good Morning. It doesn't seem possible that it is now September. The weather has been so bad that August seems to have slipped by unnoticed.
To cheer us up though we have 'Gorgeous Gowns' as our theme.  My choice this time and perhaps somewhere in the back of my mind I was hankering back to the days when I might have had the figure for one of these lovely creations.  Vaguely I remember.
Here is my 'Gorgeous  Gown'  in parchment.  A pattern by Judith Maslen called 'Beatrice'. One of three in her 'Edwardian Charm' series

The background card was made using Carol Ann's Studio 'Flutterby Purple' CD.  As usual I can't remember who made the die that was used for the flourishes.
Our team have made beautiful cards for this theme and we are especially pleased to welcome Meg and Pauline as our Guest Designers for 3 months.  They have made a couple of gorgeous 'Gorgeous Gowns' and we have been impatient to show them to you (here).
I know the team and our Guests would be delighted to receive a visit from you and any comments you care to leave will be avidly read and appreciated.
