Sweet Little Sundress

I just love the Hero Arts set A Kiss from the Sun and most especially the little sundress image.   A couple of weeks ago I put together the sundress using some SU! 6x6 dp and some SU! Real Red grosgrain ribbon, intending to use the dress for another card.   Well.... that card never got made due to a really bad migraine.  So the dress kinda floated around until I saw the current challenge from Paper Play.... a lovely sketch and a new idea for the dress began to form. 

Then yesterday I visited the blog of the lovely and talent Dana, Paper Daydream, and saw her card for the current City Crafter's (CCCB13) challenge.  Dana is the guest designer this week for City Crafters!!   Intriqued I went to check out the challenge and saw that it was a color challenge perfect for my little dress!  So, I threw it all together and came up with my card.  My red and blue are a little bit darker than the color inspiration picture and I couldn't figure out how to fit rose into the overall design, but that was optional.  I added a bit of bling with some Candy Cane Stickles and some tiny rhinestones from Close to My Heart.

Thanks for taking a peek!  Hope your weekend has been lovely!
