Inspired by... #10 Cute Dresses!

Good morning! I hope you are having a great start the weekend :) I am, pancakes are on the grill for breakfast! Yummy! Today is the Inspired by... challenge:

It was Charissa's pick this week: super cute baby dresses from Fairy Free Designs (visit their Etsy shop here)

I think it goes without saying that the card needs to include some form of dress... and I used the colours from the photo calypso coral and (with some consultation from Charissa) pool party. Here's how this photo inspired me:

The layout is a scrapbook layout from My Favourite Things that I converted to a card:

The dress is a clear focal point and I think this layout is a great way to highlight that:

The dress is super easy to make! I got the directions from Carol Payne at Stamping Rox My Fuzzy Blue Sox (see her post here), all you need is a few punches! :)

Thanks for looking today and don't forget to pop over to Charissa's blog, Snippets by Design, to see how this photo inspired her!
