Inspired by Fashion ...

A new yummy pub is out from Paper Crafts and Cath is hosting a week of fabby challenges to see it off. Here is the first one - Inspired by Fashion, with this lovely picture laying out the 'runway' for us to take off :0)


So sweet! I decided to start off right 'inside the box' on this one and then sort of 'colour outside the lines' a bit.

The size of the jacket was the start of my inspiration - the proportions are for a child ... and then of course the fabric (both the outside texture and the silky lining), the houndstooth pattern and the sparkle of the pins.

Houndstooth Giraffe

So it's a child's outfit - embossed with a fabric pattern - well inside the box. But the giraffe is well dressed in her houndstooth - complete with a matching button, accessorised with a lovely silky ribbon ...

And the sparkle comes through in the silver sentiment - also in the snaps to fasten things up :0)

What fun! Thanks for the challenge Cath - and thanks to you for stopping in and sharing with me!
