Summer sun-dresses... oh to be a little girl again!

Here is a bright & cheery summer card that I made for a Paper Wings Inspiration Challenge (actually, it a combination of two challenges):


Aren't they cute? No stamping at all, can you believe it?! I sketched the dress shape and cut out the card. It was too thick to punch the neck through, so I had to cut w/ scissors (I never realized how much I use my punches until I can't use 'em!). I used TAC's Frutti Fushion paper, Prima & MM paper flowers, Reflection Blue, Orangerie, & Chartreuse Palette inks (touches on the flowers), scalloped scissors (hem of dress), Stickles (flower centers), and the Mega circle scallop punch (for the collars). I probably should have added another band of color at the hem, but I left it simple.
