LOVE TO CRAFT CHALLENGE #6 ANYTHING GOES

Hi There and Happy New Year!
I'm super excited as this is my first post as a DT member for the...
Love To Craft Challenge Blog
The theme for this challenge is...
Anything Goes
Here is my inspiration project for the challenge... 
Here's my recipe....
Scrap piece of cardboard from a box
The Paper Studio 4.5"x6.5" 'Kirby Teesdale Studio'
Darice Doily Tape
Tim Holtz idea-ology 'Salvage Stickers'
Tim Holtz idea-ology 'Ephemera Pack'
Tim Holtz idea-ology 'Paper String'
Unbranded Dress Die
Darice Embossing Folder: Dress Form Large
Prima Distressing Tool
Nail Art Orange Wood Stick, Brown/Green/Burgundy cardstock paper, buttons, ribbon, charm bracelet, scissors charm, gauge, washi tape, flatback pearls and flatback gems from my stash

This is my first mixed media project. I really enjoyed creating it.
Here's what I did...
For my canvas, I cut a piece of cardboard off a box. Then I tore the top paper off so that the inner part would show. For the pesky part of paper that didn't want to come off, I used a nail art orange wood stick...though anything with a fine tip point will work. I left some of the paper here and there, just for a different look. I cut burgundy paper to fit behind the embossed dress forms and brown paper to fit behind the patterned paper. Then I distressed all edges of each paper, except for the patterned paper. I glued the burgundy paper behind the dress forms paper, then with the patterned paper, I slanted it slightly left and glued it onto the brown paper. Next I glued the dress forms paper slanted slightly right onto the side of the patterned paper. I glued this onto the top center of the canvas. Then tucked some gauge across the top, underneath the paper. I then glued a paper ruler to the left side, slightly under the brown paper. Next I glued paper with a picture of buttons on it, on the top, behind the brown paper, slightly slanted right. I then added some doily tape across the bottom of the brown paper. I used some of the patterned paper and green paper to glue onto the back of the dress die cut. Then I glued the dress slightly slated right onto the right side of the dress forms paper, to where it covers one dress form, with the top of the dress form showing. I added a piece of washi tape across the bottom part of the canvas. I then glued a paper with a picture of safety pins slanted right slightly behind the burgundy paper, onto the right side of the canvas. Then added a paper thread spool label on top of that. I tucked and glued the charm bracelet behind the burgundy paper and the ruler onto the left side of the canvas. Then glued a paper moth onto the left side. I glued four buttons across the washi tape. Then glued the paper dress form onto the center of the papers. I tied a piece of paper string onto the scissors and glued them to the left side top of the patterned paper. Then made a bow with ribbon and glued it below the paper dress form, onto the washi tape. I then added an S and a G (my initials) stickers onto the left side of the washi tape. For last I glued three flatback gems onto the brown paper, left side bottom. Then I glued one gem onto the top part of the paper dress form and three onto the dress die cut...where the flower cutouts are on the bottom. Then I glued a flatback pearl onto each embossed dress form, one in the center of the flower on the dress and one on the paper moth.
