Be sure to check out the Hens' Den Store and gallery for samples and to purchase these wonderful items.
I made this card for my daughter who is a freshman at Georgia Tech, I am missing her so much and wondering where all the time went.  I loved when she was little and wore little frilly dresses like this one.  She would have loved this dress as a little girl.  I also submitted this for the Paper Issues Halloween challenge.
