Encouragement Card – Runway Inspired Challenge ric#70

Here is my entry for the latest Runway Inspired Challenge (ric#70).

I struggled with this challenge because I saw the drop dead gorgeous cards that were posted by others. Usually, I try to NOT look at what other people have created. But, over the last week I saw several on blogs I read daily, Amy Rohl – Ink About Me  , Kittie Caracciolo for Ellen Hutson’s The Classroom . Sometimes, I find it difficult to see past what a real artist sees. Intimidated, I am!

Anyway, down to the last minute for me. I wanted it to be easy to mail, so a one layer card. All images are embossed. My inspirations were the vertical red, and the shine from the black elements on the dress. I stamped my envelope first, and, OH, my design was born.

My envelope:
