DCM 2nd Dare of the Year!

After a few technical hitches today, (i.e lack of internet) I was able to catch up & find out the new dare for this week; Raid The wardrobe.

This weeks dare is to look in your wardrobe for inspiration. It may be the pattern on a skirt, the style of a shirt, the pattern on a jumper or the fringe of a scarf. Your card could be clothing shaped! Just go with your creative flow.

As chance would have it, I had been asked yesterday to make a card for someone's daughter who is going to a ball. She wanted something chic.
I think it is a good card to use for the dare as I designed it with my black dress in mind. I wore the dress for my sister's wedding back in October. It is the only item in my wardrobe I can actually fit into!!!

The handbag is a Jolee boutique sticker & the dress cut to shape from a white dress I had in my stash from a year ago.
