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:


supplies: cream and pale green cardstock, Hero Arts K5157 Houndstooth, VersaMagic Tea Leaves ink, AR137 Script Messages, VersaFine Olympia Green, Papertrey Ink Beautiful Blooms II flower dies, Spare Parts pearl brad (thanks, Sue)

Total perfection, Lin! GORGEOUS flower - love that pretty, pearl brad!

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.
