Sweet Summer Dresses at OSAAT

We have a fun challenge for you this week at One Stitch at a Time: Summer Dresses. You can interpret that however you like; you can go literal, or play on the patterns, fabrics, colors associated with "Summer Dresses".

For me, inspiration came in the form of five white dresses... on one of our first really hot days, we were driving through our neighborhood and I spotted a group of women and girls on their way to some function, and five of the girls, probably around 3-10 years old, were all wearing the cutest white sundresses! They all looked great, but the girls in white were especially cute, and they popped into my head when I was designing this shaped card:

The "applique" is made with Bird on Swirly Branch by Gingerloft Digi Stamps. I used the digi stamp as an SVG cut file.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:
