Runway Inspired Challenge #44

Hello Gorgeous!
Welcome to the latest Runway Inspired Challenge! Isn't this dress enchanting? Here is my take on this challenge! Among all my stamps, this older stamp "Scroll Tree" first came to my mind and I was kind of stuck with it....somehow I felt that I had to make it work!
I'm so glad

Not sure if you can tell, but I did struggle with this challenge. Perhaps it's because I had a hard time making the stamp work with my design or maybe I want to incorporate too many things in one (that is always a challenge itself!). Here is the other card that I made (if you care to have a peek).

I hope you do check out the design team's work over Runway Inspired Challenge and feel inspired! Aga was on maternity leave and she is BACK! You definitely do not want to miss seeing our amazing guest designer Betsy Veldman's take on this!!!
Thanks for stopping by!

Blue and white - my favorite combo! LOVE this card, Virginia. The vellum is so pretty and mimics the dress so nicely.

What is the actual deadline for this challenge? I checked the challenge site which says September 17th - that's today!
