guest designing at RIC

I'm thrilled to be joining the incredibly talented team over at Runway Inspired Challenge this time around. RIC is one of my all-time favorite places to play. I love "getting vibes" from the oh-so-cool runway outfits that Jennifer selects and then transforming those vibes into a card.

Ready for the runway walk for RIC #97?



Of course I got all excited when I saw that graphic asymmetry in bold colors! But then I noticed the, what I imagined to be, vintage damask wallpaper at the back of the room. The kind my friend had in his apartment in Paris.  Well, Altenew is sponsoring this challenge, and I just happen to have Persian Motifs which I thought would be perfect for a background. Au revoir bold and graphic. Hello gold embossing and watercolor.


And then I zoomed in on the purse. Lacy lilac goodness on orange. So I violet heat embossed a lacy pattern from CHF onto my sentiment die cut from Winnie and Walter Hello.


Meet my card. This is what I enjoy about RIC. The journey of making a card.


I'm joining the lineup at SSS Wednesday Challenge where it's Anything Goes this week. I hope you'll join in at RIC #97. It's open until Dec 11th. Thanks for coming by today.

See, that's what I like about you and your cardmaking, and thenjourney your cards take. You don't always go for the obvious, but it's obvious where your inspiration comes from :)
