Simply Sunday "Fashion-ista" challenge

This is for the "Fashion-ista" challenge at Getting Cricky. I'm in a rut and haven't been overly pleased with my cards of late. I know we all go through this, it's just annoying. Here it is anyway...
It is a basic easel A2 card. The cartridge is Forever Young and it's model 13. I cut her out at 4 1/4". I didn't use the top layer of the dress as I didn't want the flowers, just the basic dress. I cut the solid blue as the shadow so she didn't disappear on the card. The patterned paper and the glitter paper are all DCWV. The solid blue and black are Recollections. I cut the word "Chic" from model 9 (pretty sure) and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I used the Lacy Labels cartridge for the glitter paper. The piece on the bottom that is holding the card up is the piece I cut off the front. It matches and continues the pattern to the base of the card. I do like how that worked. The model and the word are popped up with M.S. foam tape. Really simple card, I liked the paper so I let it do most of the work.
Have a good weekend.
