From Courtney's Closet #63 - an inspiration challenge

It's Thursday so you know what that means! Well ok, you know what it sometimes means...! Today I do indeed have another edition of From Courtney's Closet, where I make a card inspired by one of my daughter's outfits, and you're welcome to do the same. Today's card is quite sweet...

And it's inspired by Courtney's yummy little dress, covered in sweets!

I love this photo of her, but unfortunately she was also showing off her Doras! But, this is what happened when I asked her to be a little more modest...

So anyway, back to the card. I used my Hero Arts cupcake. Since the dress has a little blanket stitch around the collar, I decided some blanket stitching on the card would be fun. The rest of the card - yikes - it was kinda a free-for-all. I couldn't decide what to put on this card, so apparently I put a little of everything...! But hey, it was fun, so what the heck.

I'd like to send a big THANK YOU to Betty and Cat for playing along last week with their fun cards! If Courtney's outfit inspires you at all this week and you'd like to play along, link up your card down below so I can pop by and check it out!

  9. Libby, I just happened upon your badge in the sidebar saying "I get inspired by Courtney's Closet" and had to check it out. I see that you, too, are inspired by everyday life, like clothing. Me too! I have a selection of cards on my blog that I title "Inspired by..." and there's like 8 or 9 now. Everything gives me inspiration: really! I'll have to check out more of your daughter's outfits now.
