FALL FLOWERS for SWEET BABY COURTNEY and DIRTY SKETCH

Today's card combines two challenges ...

The first is
Jen del Muro's Dare to Get Dirty Saturday Sketch Challenge on SCS. Every day this week, the Dirty Girls are offering a variety of challenges for Fan Club Members.

The second challenge is Libby Hickson's
From Courtney's Closet Challenge. See this sweet precious baby girl? This is Courtney, Libby's baby daughter. Each week, Libby chooses an outfit or dress from Courtney's closet, creates a card inspired by the outfit/dress, and challenges her readers to do the same. It's GOT to be the cutest idea I've ever seen for a stamping challenge! I also enjoy seeing the super cute pictures Libby takes of Courtney modeling the inspiration piece each week! Isn't she a doll?!


Courtney's dress immediately made me think of the paper you see in the squares which is from Fall Flowers DP. The Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon and the polka dots around the main flower image brings in the color and pattern of the trim. This card measures 5" x 5".
RECIPE
Stamps: Enjoy Every Moment
