The latest Runway Inspired Challenge (ric#94) is based on the inspiration from Houghton Bridal.

The lace was my inspiration.

I die cut flowers and leaves from Shimmery White cardstock with the Bold Blooms dies (stand alone), and glued them individually onto white cardstock.

Here is my lace background:

I attached the lace background to a top fold card, and added a sentiment (platinum embossed on black).

Edited 11/3/2015: My card got selected as one of the Fabulous Fashionistas for the challenge. Thanks to the Runway team!

Supplies: Stamp – Paper Salon, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Black, Shimmery White, ink – VersaFine Smoky Gray, dies – Essentials by Ellen, embossing powder – Ranger Liquid Platinum.

Runway Inspired Challenge – ric#47 Card 1

ric47 birthday

Here is my first try at the latest Runway Inspired Challenge – ric#47.

The satin ribbon was left over from an elementary school play – I used it on a cape for a page (a herald,a footman? A character from “Cinderella”…I had to ask Offspring3!), or the banner the page was carrying. It was the year that Offspring3 was in 4th grade, the play that year was a Review of the 10 plays the school had done since opening (so a scene from each play). Offspring3 was not the page, but was in a scene from “Guys and Dolls”.

(Jeez, Offspring3 is in 11th grade…have I really had that ribbon at my fingertips for 7 years??)

The inspiration for this challenge was this design, by Alberta Ferretti:
