 The latest Runway Inspired Challenge (ric#65) is here!

Here is the inspiration look, from Louis Vuitton Resort 2015:

I was inspired by the lace blouse, and the colors. I embossed in white on cream cardstock. I cut a doily out of Night of Navy cardstock, then cut a rectangle tag out of the doily to make the layer behind the sentiment. I did debate adding crystals or enamel dots, but thought it was better left unembellished.

I can’t think of Louis Vuitton without thinking of the movie “Leap Year” – Anna (Amy Adams) had a Louis Vuitton suitcase, and Declan (Matthew Goode) called it “Louis”. I can’t find my favorite clip about the suitcase, but this one will do just fine.

  1. The inspiration and the card are truly a pair. Lovely. I was able to see the clip. I LOVE Amy Adams. Thanks for the smile.

    • Thanks, Terry! My favorite line from the movie is, “t’row it in the wash, it’ll be grand!” (about shoes in manure, then about Louis on the roof of the car)
