Pretty Dresses


I have some exciting news to share, Craft Corners contacted me and and asked to feature my blog in their Best of the Web collection.  You can see my card along with more of their awesome picks at their site Craft Corners Best of the Web .  Be sure to check out their post on Craft Room Organization too, I found it really interesting!  Thank you for featuring me, I am really honored. 
 I must admit, this card was totally inspired by, the challenge at Inspired By this week, thank you Laurel for hosting the challenges they are so much fun and truly inspiring.  BTW, I won the challenge there last week :) thanks again Laurel.
I used the Pretty Dresses SVG cut file from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff along with her Hugs and Kisses paper.  The background paper is from a writing pad that had clouds in the background.  The grass and fence cut files are from Birds Cards, she always has such wonderful freebies.  The clothespins are from my stash, purchased from Dollar Treasure at least a year ago!   I originally had a pale pink and white polka dot dress in the middle and I did not like it so I colored over it with my Canary yellow Promarker, I like how the polka dots did not wash out.  I used some foam mounting to pop up the grass, fence and the dresses too.  I don't think this would mail very well, the clothespins are a bit delicate so I will have to save it for a hand delivered card.

Thanks for looking.  ~Diane
