Emma's Dress Shoppe

Friends With Flair time again.

I used the Sketchbook Saturday sketch:


And the color challenge at CR84FN:

I immediately thought of the Emma's Shoppe papers by Crate Paper when I saw this inspiration.   This is also for the CCEE challenge - May Flowers

I used the Undeniably You set and paper pieced the dress.


Be sure to check out all the participants at the Unity blog.
