Runway Inspired Challenge # 58 ( A Good-Bye)

Hello, gorgeous
 
We are having a special challenge this time as we are combining the runway photo with CAS(E) the Sketch Challenge! Fun, huh?

My take on this sketch AND runway photo
sweet friend
In this card, I used the stamps that Runway Inspired DT Tasnim ( now co-founder/owner of the new Altenew) designed. Have you heard of this new stamp company Altenew run by Tasnim and Jennifer? The stamp designs are top-notch as you can see how amazing this rose stamp is. I know all of their stamps are so popular that some of them were sold out on the first day of release!

 It is also a bittersweet moment for me to say good-bye to the Runway Inspired Challenge DT.  I am stepping down after this challenge. It's been a very fun and creative ride being on this amazing team. I want to thank Jennifer (founder of RIC) for offering me the chance to be on this awesome DT. I hope that you will continue to follow and be inspired by Runway Inspired Challenge! The new DT members will be announced at a later date!

Thanks for stopping by!

Your interpretation is beautiful, Virginia. The cut out is clever and artsy. The colorful dots and bling add a nice pop. The rose has lovely texture. I know you will be missed on the DT.

I want you to know that I became a fan of RIC Challenges because of your cards in the first place. Since then I made lot of discoveries around blogland thanks to this challenge. But it's only because of you. :-)
