Bonjour! - Runway Inspired

Hello, friends!  Wow!  I am a sleepy girl!  The Hubbums and I had a super fun long weekend/mini vacation and it rocked!  It has, however, left me quite exhausted!  Isn't that always the way?  I do have a card to share with you today, however!  I decided to play along with the Runway Inspired challenge this week!  Here is the inspiration photo that was provided from the Reem Acra Fall 2013 collection.


Oh, so pretty!  I am a big fan of black and white, and I was also quite drawn to the simplicity of this photo.  Light and dark.  I love it!  I pulled out some of my Gourmet Rubber Stamps to create the card below.

Bonjour!

Rather than straight florals, I chose some text and butterflies. I like that it still has a garden-type feel without being too literal. The text stamp comes from the Sealed With a Kiss set, the butterflies are from the Butterfly Trio set (and if you look closely you see a hint of the music butterfly hiding beneath the popped up butterfly), and the sentiment is from the Say it Big set, I simply masked the stamp to only use the one word. It is all stamped in Tsukineko Momento Tuxedo Black ink.

Bonjour (detail)

I just love a great butterfly stamp. I really do. *sigh*

And that, my friends, is what I have for you today! I do so hope you have a delightful day! Bonjour!

Have a Happy!
