RIC 90

I love inspiration challenges and the Runway Inspired Challenge has to be one of my favorites. I love how cutting edge fashion can spark creativity using paper and ink as a medium. My card was inspired by this sweet, feminine dress designed by:

I used Fresh Cut Florals from WPlus9 stamps. It's an oldie, but a goodie. I consider this stamp set a classic. The sentiment is from Altenew's Label Love. Can I say, I love that set? Why yes, I can say it and I just did! There are so many basic sentiments. It's a must have!

I distressed a white doily in Mustard Seed and the printed vellum was something I found in my stash. I thought it went perfectly with that really light gray background.

Please consider joining the challenge if you're the card-making type. It's a lot of fun and a great way to stretch your skills!

Wish ...

I'm throwing my hat into the ring for two challenges - The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge (anything goes) and the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge. Here is the sketch:

Aaaaand here is my card based on the sketch:

I created the wavy rainbow with Stitched Slopes and Hills die by Simon Says Stamp. The star is also a Simon die from this set. I had to use a stamp from one of my favorite stamp companies, Altenew.
Thanks for visiting and have a great day!

Paper Sweeties August Inspiration Challenge #34 - Happy Birthday

Woo hoo! It's party time at Paper Sweeties and do they have a lot of fun stuff lined up for you this month. "Why?" you ask. Paper Sweeties is turning three!

This month is chock full of inspiration, prizes, giveaways and a whole lot more! You're going to want to check the blog and like their Facebook page because, trust me, you don't want to miss out on any of these opportunities.

First, we're kicking it off with the monthly challenge, which is appropriately themed "Happy Birthday." Check out the sweet palette of pastels and the scrumptious cupcake inspiration photo.

The foundation of Paper Sweeties are the adorable SWEETIES paper dolls. Debbie, the owner, developed the concept for a line of dolls with outfits and accessories in June, 2010, and developed follow up sets with beautiful frames, labels, banners, sentiments and lovely images followed.  She officially launched Paper Sweeties in August, 2012.
Because of this, I'm featuring one of the dolls, Sophie, on my card. I always color Sophie's hair brown because it is the same color as my daughter's hair. :-) Sophie is wearing one of the many adorable outfits in the Paper Sweeties boutique.  I chose to embellish the card with stars because the cupcakes in the inspiration photo looked sort of like stars to me.
Please enjoy the rest of the hop. Your next stop is Cheryl Lea. The entire list is below. Have fun!!
