Week 313: DRESS

It's time for a new cue word!  Autumn is approaching here in North America and, with its arrival, we're all starting to think about changing our attire to something a little warmer.  As usual, you can interpret this week's cue word however it inspires you!  We're curious to see what the gallery wardrobe looks like!

As always, remember the following CAS guidelines when creating your design:
  1. One main image
  2. Lots of open space, uncluttered
  3. Limited layers & embellishments
  4. Quick & easy to recreate (Note: It may take a while to create a design you like, but once you have that design, making more should be a piece of cake!)

STAMPlorations is returning as our wonderful sponsor and is offering this challenge's winner a $15 gift certificate to the online store!

STAMPlorations is having a 25% off fall sale right now on stamps, stencils and dies in the Flutter Fall section of the store!  Be sure and go take a look!  Use code FLUTTER25 at checkout.  Sale continues until the end of this month.
