Dressing Up with Papertrey Ink


Papertrey Ink is celebrating its new release, Dress Up Dolls, with a challenge - select a piece of clothing from your closet or from an online clothing store to inspire a project:

I'd liked to have used something from my own closet to inspire myself but my daily outfit of jeans and t-shirt really didn't provide much inspiration!

Instead, I found the photo above on Pinterest - unfortunately I've no idea who to credit for the dress but I can assure you, I won't be doing the school run in it!  It did give me an idea on how to use Doodlie Do though - I love the way the silver and gold is peaking out of the black, fabric panels so I gold and silver embossed a selection of blooms, then partially covered it with a black panel of card stock. The sentiment is from Birthday Basics.

That's enough doodling on from me,

Thanks for calling by!
