Ready for Spring with a yellow dress!

Today I have a card I made for 2 challenges. The first is a Sketch Challenge at Die Cuts R Us and the 2nd is at Crazy 4 Challenges called It's all about Texture!, To create a project using at least 3 different textures.

Here is the sketch created by Lori from the Die Cuts R Us Design Team.

As I was looking through some old stamps I found this set of dresses, I have no idea who they are made by, so if any of you have an idea please let me know so I can give them credit. It is a set of 10 dresses on hangers. I have not used them much before, but now that I am using Copics they are lots of fun to color!!! I flipped the sketch to the side, used a Cuttlebug embossing folder on the dress mat and the scalloped pieces, added ribbon and a bow (made with the Bow- easy....LOVE it!!) and then made the flower using this tutorial I found on Lord Have Mercy! Click here to check it out.

THANKS for taking a look at my yellow dress card!! It reminds me of my Senior prom dress, though now that I think of snowed that night, a big snow storm in May!! It's not the only snow I remember in May here in Wisconsin.
See you tomorrow for some Unity Friends With Flair.

Beautifully done, Jodi! Love your papers and your image. Pretty paper flower too. Snow on prom? Not good. It rained on one of mine. Must be the hair gods out to punish us...hehehe.
