Summer Dressing--CR84FN Challenge 32 and CAS-ual Friday

I love sweet summer dresses for girls of all ages, even though sadly I've passed the age for wearing them. And  I don't have any little girls in my life to wear them,  but I can have fun making some paper dresses.
I took some of my favorites--gingham and flowers and  
 CAS-ual Friday challenge  to make a shaped card
and another great color combination from  CR84FN Color Challenge

and made a sweet little dress invitation.

 This SVG file is from The Cutting Cafe.  I recently purchased several files, so I'll be having some fun making some shaped cards.
Thanks for stopping by,

Happy Fourth of July!

Parades,  concerts, cookouts, pool parties, fireworks... people and pets decked out in their red, white, and blue... celebrating America's independence

If you have seen the July/August issue of Papercrafts, then you know the inspiration for these cards is on the cover and on page 20 with the sketch by Betsy Veldman and the cards by AJ Otto and Terri Anderson.
And this last card came about simply because  I felt I needed to use my Cricut  more often. And you know how I love A Child's Year cartridge. :)

For those of you in the states have a safe and happy Fourth! And for the rest  have a safe happy Monday!
