i saw a butterfly (RIC, Dazzling Divas, ATSAM)

What do you see when you look at the latest fashion photo from Runway Inspired Challenge?

Well forgive me for this one, but at first glance I thought skinny model here was wearing giant wings (maybe it's something about the position of her arms. Or just my eyes.) Ping. Butterfly. Then I got the whimsical, light and airy overall feel of the photo thanks to that sheer backdrop. Ping. Vellum. Then the black "outlines" on the outfit and finally the XXL black clunker on her finger.

Which all turned into this card. Which is yellow and black, cuz my mind's eye assumed this was yellow. (Must really be my eyes!) 

Stamped the sentiment and then the stems of the STAMPlorations tulips in black on card. Heat embossed tulips yellow on vellum and backed the vellum strip with PP. Stitched and adhered to card. Die cut butterfly from Add a Little Dazzle metal sheet in black and adhered it with glue dots. A strip of PP along the bottom was the finishing touch.

Yup, I saw a giant butterfly too the first time I looked at the RIC photo, Maria! Love how your card turned out -- so ultra-elegant chic!

Wow ... you've captured the drama of the inspiration so fabulously, Maria ... those fine stemmed tulips mimic skinny model beautifully! Yellow/gold, gold/yellow ... either way it's a stunner! Anita :)

Hi Maria. Such a creative interpretation of the photo. I'm with you ... at first glance I thought the model had wings :) LOVE how you've added the airiness of the image with you vellum panel. Loll xx

OMGSH this is amazing! I love the embossed tulip design! That, for me, took this over the edge to the border of swoon!! I am inspired to try heat embossing on vellum! My Goodness!

Oh, I really love this card, Maria! Your double stamping with the vellum panel is amazing and your butterfly looks like 'Leather' to me...I think it's so creative!
