Fresh Cut Dress for Mother

Happy Saturday everyone! Here in MA it is bright and sunny and supposed to be in the 70's - yahoo!! Kent and I are going into Boston this afternoon to a see a play called "The Cry of the Reed" I'll let you know how it was tomorrow!

So Saturday's on Split Coast is always the Inspiration Challenge hosted by Stef. Today she inspired us with fabrics. Heather Bailey is the designer of these fabrics called Fresh Cut Fabrics. I chose this one here:

And I made this card. As promised yesterday - here is the cute little origami dress that is another pattern in the wonderful book I just got (see yesterday's posting for the butterfly and information on the book).
I had some origami paper that was close in color to the inspiration piece and it had flowers on it so I used that for the dress. I used my cuttlebug to dry emboss the purple panel. I added primas and a flower brad to the corner. The ovals are cut with nestabilities. The oval and sentiment are attached with dimensionals.

Thanks so much for coming by today - I'm off to the play - see you tomorrow with my featured stamper card!
