L.A.M.B. - look at my blazer - (RIC)

The latest ensemble up at Runway Inspired Challenge... have you seen it?

 Well, OK, so she's got a red/orange/neony-mix-of-the-two/could-it-be-any-brighter cool jacket on (remember when we used to call 'em "blazers"?  I worked for EDS for many a year if that tells you anything...)  Can't miss that.  Wanna know what caught my eye next?  Her 'do.  Windblown-ish. And while my eye was up there I caught the sunglasses.  And then I noticed the cool pink wall behind her.  Done with lighting I suppose.  I done mine with watered down Distress inks on my craft mat.  And squishes.

Believe it or not, the first piece of scrap I pulled out of my pile to pink up, was this wonky shaped piece. And I thought of the hair.  Ping.  No trimming here. And I have this amazing corally red CS from Amuse that I was lucky to win over at CASual Fridays last year (it was part of a special pack in honor of  breast cancer month.)  It is dead on for that jacket.  Um, blazer.

A couple die cut branches and birdie from WPlus9 Folk Art Florals (still have to get myself the Fresh Cut Florals - anyone know where to get it in Europe?) with a couple branches stamped in gray too and voila. No wing on birdie as a nod to those sunglasses, BTW.  No sentiment cuz this is to be a thank you notecard for Oma who sent us home with all kinds of goodies when DD and I visited her last week.  Aren't Omas fabby?

Thanks for looking and hey, I made the deadline ;)))

Paper: cardbase The Paper Studio, black American Crafts
