Runway Inspired Challenge #28 - Carolina Herrera


Every winter I wonder why I live where I live...11 degrees!  It is so so cold out there, and I refuse to go anywhere today.  If its okay with you, I am going to dream of the tropics while I type this. :0)  I made a couple of cards using the latest Runway Inspired Challenge #28.  I adore the flowing nature of her gown and the mod colors and circles!

That took me to a clean card, using the colors from the pic (although, I believe it might be black instead of navy...maybe I am blind?) as well as all of those fabulous circles!

I punched circles from various cardstock and adhere them to my panel, stamping a sentiment from the Bright Idea stamp set from Technique Tuesday.  I mounted the panel onto a white card base.

For another card using the challenge colors, I brought out some new to me, Mama Elephant stamps.

Using Beyond Basic Borders, I stamped the large dot strip at the base of my card, and added the feathers that were stamped and cut out.

Last, I stamped my sentiment and added a button threaded with twine.

Thanks for stopping by!
