Runway Inspired Challenge

Excited to join in on the fun this week with the Runway Inspired Challenge. When I saw the inspiration photo, I was hooked!

 For my card, I was mostly inspired by the colors and stars in the background. I went a bit unconventional because I actually created a masculine card...based off of women's fashion no less! Hope you enjoy!

Here is the inspiration photo.

Hello, lovely.

All you need to do is spend just a little bit of time looking through my blog posts and you will quickly find that CAS (clean and simple) cards are not my style and certainly not a strength of mine. So, that is precisely why I decided to participate in Virginia's View Challenge this month..it's just that, a tremendous challenge!! So here is my attempt at a clean and simple card. I started with a crisp white card base and cut a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 pierce of patterned paper from Simple Stories' A Charmed Life collection. Then I cut it at a slant and adhered the bottom portion of the cut piece to the base. I cut a strip of polka dot navy blue gingham ribbon and adhered it with Scor-Tape. Stamped PTI's Wet Paint "Hello" in Butter Bar shadow ink from Hero Arts and "lovely" in navy.I then finished off the card with 3 baby bling rhinestones.  Hopefully one of these days I'll be more comfortable with this style! That's all for today. Hope you enjoy and are not mortified by my poor attempt at CAS!!
