Runway Inspired Challenge #5

The 2012 Spring fashion is upon use again...what's a card-maker to do? I am jumping on the creative wagon over Runway Inspired Challenge #5 to honor Spring.

For me, it was truly a challenge to come up with something very light, soft and subtle. After playing with a stamps, I decided to use vellum and butterfly to interpret the light colors and hues in this gorgeous photo.
God is Good!
In order to capture the light in the inspired photo, I stamped partial Envelop Pattern for the square and embossed the the butterfly stamp (from Lauderdale Floral ) in white over blue vellum. I also did some scoring to mimic the skirt of the model.  I chose the sentiment from SRM Stickers (Faith) because it seems perfect for this design. I am thankful to God in many things...creating for the fun is one of the many blessing I have. Have a blessed day!
