Runway Inspired Challenge #ric41 and a Moxie Fab World: Birthday Card Challenge

This week, I have sometimes to play along with the super talented ladies at Runway Inspired ChallengeThis week's challenge is this gorgeous dress by Zac Posen (love him on Project Runway show).  Also, CAS(E) this Sketch #40 is incorporated into the design.


 
 


Here's my card


 
To create the flowers, I heat embossed a piece of cardstock with tiny flower background by Stampin' Up and distressed it with Ranger Distressed Ink Tattered Rose.  Then I die cut the flower (PTI die) and distressed the flower with the following colors: Worn Lipstick, Barn Door, and Aged Mahogany.  Worn Lipstick didn't show much after Aged Mahogany was used, so I think I would have gotten the same result if I skipped Worn Lipstick.  The sentiment is handwritten using a black sharpie.

Closer look:



Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you have a wonderful day!!
