Inspired by Fashion

Moxie Fab World has a challenge tied into its newest publication "Get Inspired Card Creations".  Here's the photo inspiration:


Love this shade of green and there is just something about houndstooth.  Since one of my favorite stamps is this pattern, I couldn't wait to have a stab at this challenge:

Houndstooth

  10. I love the way you've taken the houndstooth theme from the shirt & the way you have offset the wording in keeping with the houndstooth patterning. The flower is a stunner with the jewelled brad & your placing is just beautifully balanced.
