ric #44. . . .

Isn't this gown breathtaking??




I needed to make a birthday card for a friend and her favorite color is blue (as is mine), so I had to give the current  Runway Inspired challenge a try:



I used the Mojo Monday 311 sketch for this card - rather loosely, I admit.  But the overall design is there I think.  And, the scroll stamp from Hero Arts reference the swirls in the beautiful dress from RIC.


This card was made with just stamps and cardstock, with a few sequins and liquid pearls for accent.  I am pleased with the results.

Thanks so much for visiting.

Love your card, Joy! It has the beautiful combination of stamps (adore the Flourish and butterfly), layering and gorgeous blues! Way to combine the sketch, too! So happy that you join the fun with us at Runway Inspired Challenge!

Beautiful blue card, Joy! Love how you used the sketch and that lovely butterfly. I love the card, but I sure think that runway model could use a cheeseburger!
