Runway Inspired Challenge # 53


Hello gorgeous!
Welcome to Runway Inspired Challenge!

 I treated the Runway photo as a sketch and took the colors from there...
008
  I first embossed the Antique Engraving in Aubergine/purple and made a diecut with Spellbinders. Then I cut the circle and arranged it much like the design for the dress. I also punched two small holes to tie up the ribbons. It's fitting for an anniversary card (sentiment is from Take a Number Fresh Squeezed Stamps) !

Please check out my team mates design (see here) and get inspired!
    Aga / Jennifer/ Joni / Kristen / Mayuri / Taheerah/ Tasnim/ Pamela/ me (Virginia)
 You will love what they had created for you.

I will be back shortly with TWO more posts today! Yup, it's a busy blog day here :) 
Thanks for stopping!

What a great idea to treat the dress as a sketch Virginia - never thought of that! Love how you interpreted that concept with the design and colours in your card!

What a wonderful layout, finished up beautifully with that satin ribbon (plus, I've always been a sucker for that Antique Engraving stamp!).

Really like this card, Virginia! Especially how you cut the diecut in 2 & connected them with the ribbon. The symbolism for an anniversary card is perfection!
