RIC #25


If you've beaten me to my editing, forgive the raw post. I made it with about 10 seconds to spare to enter Runway Inspired Challenge #25. Editing now. ;-)

Phew! That was another example of my speed card-making skills! This card was made, photographed, uploaded, and linked within 20 minutes.

Here is a closer look at the card, with my unglamourous sofa and cushion background, LOL!
I used PTI Pretty Peonies, Filigrie Border, and I forget where that little sentiment came from. The leaves are Sizzix small leaves. Colours are SU! Early Espresso, Poppy Parade, Old Olive, Bashful Blue, and Tempting Turquoise, and PTI White.

Inspiration was provided by this delicious outfit.
Isn't it cute? :-) I'm not sure about those socks/tights and flippers, but the dress itself screams PARTY to me!

Now, back to writing out those Christmas cards... some might arrive before Christmas...

Thanks for coming by!

I love your take on the challenge, Michelle! Sometimes these quick impulsive cards are winners, so good for you for hopping to it and getting 'er done!!

Barb said...

I'm frantically finishing my cards too, Michelle! Love your beautiful take on the inspiration photo! :)

Ok, you need to make cards under pressure more often because this is a beauty! it really does look like the headpiece and I like the color combo very much. Using brown is a fresh touch.

I'm so glad you were able to link up in time! I love your card :) Thanks for joining us on the Runway!

stunning card! you make the most beautiful things. and what a darling outfit...although i'm curious to know if/how she walked in those. i can only walk backward in flippers; all forward-motion involves cartwheeling on the sand. fun times. :)
