Inspired by Adam Lippes Fall 2015

YOU GUYS! I made a card for a challenge. I haven't wanted and/nor had time to do a card for a challenge in a long time. It feels good. I like it better when I feel like me. Anyway, I checked out a few challenges last night as I was about to create and decided on this great inspiration from the Runway Inspired Challenge blog, always one of my favorites!

There were a couple of things in the photo that really caught my eye. First, her belt. Yup. She is wearing a belt. It is the same fabric as the dress, only SHINY! I like shiny. That is likely why it caught my eye. Second, I loved the smooth, seamless white behind her. It really allows her dress to pop! (Dude, I totally just typed poop instead of pop. I caught it, but it was TOO funny to not mention it. For reals, though. HA! I'm five.)

Since I was sort of stuck on the belt, I designed my card based on that. I created a 'belt' on my card! I simply trimmed some black cardstock and then stamped the rose from Winnie & Walter's The Big, The Bold, and The Extras with Versamark. I heat embossed some in pink and some in white (I did that in two steps so I wouldn't contaminate the colors), and then adhered it to my white background with foam tape. The sentiment comes from both the same stamp set and Winnie &Walter's The Big, The Bold, and You set and is stamped in black VersaFine ink for a nice, crisp finish.

I mounted the panel on a black card base for a nice finish. I have to say, this is why I love Runway Inspired challenges. For some reason the collections chosen REALLY inspire me and I always love the results when I play along!

Folks, have a happy!
