Fri. June 10, 2011 CSS Alumni Inspiration Hop

Hi everyone!  I hope you are ready to be inspired again, as we have an awesome website to use as our inspiration. If you arrived from Giovana's blog, you are in the right place.  If you would like to start at the beginning, click HERE.


Blog Hop Details:
Create a card or project based on any of the featured in birthday themed photos from The Party Dress (http://www.thepartydress.net) .
I've circled the photo I used for my inspiration.




My flower was made using 5 kites from the new "Vintage Chic" StampTV kit. I scored the Red Hot red Pure Luxury card stock- to imitate the pin tucks on the little girl's dress. I punched my white border , inspired by her collar. The touch of green ribbon on the button-from the flower stem!




Thank you for visiting my blog and letting me share my card with you!
Now you are going to visit the very talented KAY's BLOG and see her beautiful work.
