Runway Inspired Thank You

I mentioned in an earlier post that I was making an effort to participate in more challenges. I'm sticking to my word and entering the Runway Inspired Challenge with this card:


This outfit by Veronica Beard was the inspiration piece. Instead of creating several multicolored flowers, I created one big flower as my focal point (flower stamp by Crafts Meow), and paper pieced multiple colors onto the petals. I also pulled the black and white from the hounds tooth suit into the petals. (I didn't have any hounds tooth paper, so I improvised with black and white stripes.) The patterned paper background was also inspired by the rug in the photo.



 Edited to add: My blog friend, Amy Tsurata, suggested I add it to the Virginia's View Challenge, also, so I'm throwing my hat into the ring! Thanks for the suggestion!!

I had fun with this one. It was a lot of fussy cutting and paper piecing, but I really like the result! Thanks for visiting!!
