Runway Inspired Challenge #53–Thanks!

 

Hello friends!

 

RIC53 Graphic

 

Popping in quickly to share my take on the latest Runway Inspired Challenge.  This week’s challenge graphic just blew me away.  I am in awe of that jewel toned orchid color, with the pops of black, gold and turquoise.  As is usual with me, I wanted to keep it as simple as possible.  Here’s what I came up with:

I went to town with my Silhouette Cameo, die cutting the flower image in several different layers out of several different cardstocks.  I thought the shimmery purple paper was reminiscent of the sheen on the taffeta of the dress.

The sentiment is from a stamp set I discovered via Jennifer McGuire (brilliantly talented and the ultimate in enablers in our business, right?!).  I’ve linked all products used below.  I think there’s still a bit of time to play along with this week’s challenge, so if you’re inspired, you can find all of the details HERE.

 

Thanks for popping in today.  I’m off to crop with my girlie.  I’ll be back tomorrow with some Paper Smooches goodies!  Hope you’ll stop by again soon!
