Runway Inspired Challenge #58 and CAS(E) this sketch #73

I've been intrigued with the Runway Inspired Challenges and decided it was time to try one.  The challenge is also linked with a Sketch Challenge blog so this card was designed for both challenges.

Below is the Trina Turk outfit and the sketch:

My flowers were made from red vellum using a Stampin Up Blossom punch.  For the second tier of petals I cut a slit in the flower and glued the two petals adjoining the slit together to create a bit of dimension.  Before gluing this second tier to the bottom layer, I cut off the cone shape formed when I glued the two petals together.  The center was cut from a dotted paper with a sun punch.  To form the circular layer I used a B&W dotted semi-circle and a white paper doily.  The butterfly was cut with a Marianne Creatables die and the label was made with Spellbinders Nestabilities.  I think the black and white pattern paper I chose for the butterfly and label is quite similar to the material used for the shorts.  "Smile" is a stamp from Stamp N Plus Scrap N.  It is part of a set that is not currently on their website but can be ordered by calling LuAnn at 715-271-1873.

There's a bit of pale blue in the sweater and my design needed a little something to fill the white space in the upper right corner.  I added a few pale blue rhinestones.

  1. I love this! Black and white with a bold splash of red, perfect in my book!

  2. Perfectly matched to the challenge! Lovely card and I really like the rhinestones you added randomly :)

  3. The texture of your card- from the doily to the flowers to the die cut to the rhinestones- are just fab! Thanks so much for joining us on the Runway!
