That Little Black Dress

I don't know about you but I don't even own a little black dress - mainly because I've not been a dress-wearer for many, many years. Don't really know why but at one point in my past I decided I didn't like wearing dresses anymore. Weird, I know. So when I saw this challenge for the Heart2Heart blog, I was like - what the heck can I create for this challenge? I don't own a little black dress to inspire me so I was really stumped.

Well, I went onto Pinterest to get some ideas but there wasn't much there, which I found quite unusual. Next I did a Google search and somehow was directed to Splitcoaststampers, I believe, (sorry, I always forget to write that info down) where a gal there had shared her template for a dress that could be made out of paper and added to a card. Ureka! I found what I was looking for! I am not real good at making my own patterns/templates so I am very happy that there are many talented ladies out there who know how to do that and don't mind sharing with the rest of us less talented souls! Thank you!
