Runway Inspired Challenge #75: Sending Love

Sneaking this one in as it's only a few hours until the linky closes! Here is the gorgeous inspiration for the challenge:
Isn't it fabulous? So my card was mainly inspired by the color and the bling and intricate design at her neck--

Due to the striking and nearly overpowering color, I wanted to balance it with some white space. I began by using my confetti making piece of my PTI Shakers & Sprinkles heart dies. I created the shaker portion and inserted the hearts, glitter and some sequins. I actually did not have cardstock in the pink neon color, so I took my white paper and swiped my Hero Arts Neon Pink dye ink pad and then die cut the stitched heart frame and "love".  Then to add some interest, I inked up my new to me Garden Grace PTI stamp set. For the leaves I used Hero Arts' Neon chartreuse and the same pink for the flowers--the second part of the stamp was 2nd generation, so that it matched perfectly.

 I finished it off with the enamel dots and stamped "sending" from the Sparkle and Shine stamp set and then mounted it to a card base that was embellished with Lawn Fawn's stitched mats for interest. In real life it truly shines and strikes the eye much like the dress. Well I hope you enjoy my interpretation!! :)

Thank you, have a great weekend and craft on!
