Runway Inspired Challenge #33

 Hello Gorgeous!
Runway Inspired Challenge is here again! This time we have this sunny and delicate fashion to inspire us. It's perfect for April!
 Our sponsor is the talented and sweet Josci from Bossy Joscie.

We DT were lucky to use Joscie's flairs for our design. For my card, I used this lovely music note.
RIC card
I took a very simple approach! This Fancy die is so versatile, I really didn't have to add too much more. Some masking and stamping were required. In order to make the diecut shine a bit more, I did paint the mixture of water and Perfect Pearl to highlight the outer edge of the diecut.  However, it did take me a LONG time to add that little piece of black ribbons under the music flair. I really want to recognize that black headband from the model and I would like to incorporate that design element to my card. I tried black strings, jute, baker's twines and even a black butterfly....in the end, this is IT :)

Please check out my uber talented DT mates' inspiring work!

And....big congrats to our DT Aga who just had a baby girl!
