I should be doing laundry and preparing to go away next week but really wanted to participate in the Runway Inspired Challenge - ric#33. I love to see all of the fabulous creations inspired by the couture photos on this blog. I am also entering this card into Flourishes 'Summer Lovin' challenge - to create a card with summer in mind - here I have used the beautiful yellow of the summer sunshine and embossed flowers.
What spoke to me when I saw this photo was the texture in the top, the
yellow and black ribbons and of course the beautiful sunny yellow. I
started out by inking one side of an embossing folder directly with my
ink pad and running it through my cuttlebug to try and recreate the
texture of the top. At this stage I didn't really have a clear idea of
how I wanted to use this embossed piece but it was so pretty and
delicate that I thought it would make a perfect baby card.
