Runway Inspired Challenge

BWS tips button
Have you heard? There is a NEW challenge blog on the block! It's called runway inspired Challenge! I am most intrigued by the concept and I love love the idea of cards inspired by fashion!! Tres chic! Of course, I had to join the fun! 
 This first challenge is from Versace with this gorgeous photo.
My take
oh me oh MY!
This is actually my 2nd card on the same design. I had to be a bit fussy about the stamped images since it is fairly CAS. EVERY little bit really makes a huge difference.
Here is the close-up

So what do you think? Isn't this FUN or what!? For more information about the supplies, please click on the card photo, it will take you to my Flickr site.

I am getting very excited about my birthday as I type...Last night I found my engagement ring MISSING! I SCREAMED out loud and it turned out Dr. John was doing something "special" with that ring. So I was told.... A BIGGER replacement with the diamond perhaps???? I can't wait. And I can't wait to see the new issue of Jan/Feb issue of Paper Crafts! It's my 2nd pub! And I can't wait to find out this Friday (on my 50th birthday) whether my card submissions make the cut to the special issue of Volume 10 Paper Crafts! Now THAT would be some present if my wishes come true! And I thank you for taking part in my virtual birthday party. It has been a BLAST to visit the guests and their super fabulous work!

I tell ya, I am excited!!!!!!!!

Oh WOW, V, this is AMAZING!! What a PERFECT interpretation of the photo! To my eye, the yellow circles look like the model walking down the runway of the black circles. Or, the butterfly is the model floating down the runway of circles. JUST gorgeous! A winner for sure!
