Terrific Tuesday Fashion Inspiration Challenge

Happy Tuesday!

It's time for the Terrific Tuesday Challenge over on Cindy's Blog. This month her challenge was to use fashion for inspiration when creating a card. At first I was stumped, but then I remembered the dress I recently got for a wedding I'm going to later this summer. It's a simple white dress with brown roses and splashes of turquoise. Here's a photo of it ----->

I kept my card quite simple. I used the same colors as the dress with the same basic design. I chose Close to Cocoa, Tempting Turquoise, and White. I did have to change the flowers, I don't own any rose stamps. I used my Embrace Life stamps from Stampin' Up! and the sentiment is from All Holidays, also Stampin' Up!. I added some glitter to the center flower for some sparkle.

I hope you'll hop on over to Cindy's Blog and check out the other samples using fashion as inspiration. Give this challenge a try too!

Oh and I have blog candy up for grabs, scroll down to see the details, you have until midnight ET, Friday June 27th! So far there are some fantastic color combo ideas, thanks to all who have shared. :)

Happy Stamping! :)
