RIC#8 - last minute entry!

Hello!

I'll edit this post in a sec. It was a true last minute entry and I only had 4 minutes to spare! Phew! I think I made it. :-)

Well, that was exciting! I've been pondering this challenge since it first went up, and somehow I forgot to make my card, LOL! This is for Runway Inspired Challenge #8. This is the lovely inspiration from Alexander McQueen.
I wanted to get the brown of the leaves and the charcoal of the wall in with the black with bright flowers. I didn't want too much white on my card (and this was my challenge, I like white!) While I've been pondering this picture for a couple of weeks, I only left myself 20 minutes to make, photograph, post, and link the entry. Talk about procrastination!!

Here is a closer version of the photo. Not my usual background. Although, my sofa makes a lovely colour background to this card. :-)
I used PTI Rosie Posie, Hero Arts Say It All. The paper is Stampin'Up! Mocha Morning. Card is Early Espresso, Black, and White (all SU!). I white embossed the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping in to visit!

Michelle, I like your take on the RIC! I love to see what in particular inspires a crafter, upon looking at a photo of something.

Thanks for coming by my blog! Just became a Follower of yours. :) Have a great day!

Can't believe you made and posted this fabulous card in just 20 minutes... and I thought I was leaving it late and I had a whole 3 hours to spare! Love how your gorgeous flower just pops on that elegant black bg!

I love it when I see people using Rosie Posie! I got this set last month and I've stained 90% of them already =_=
