Hey there, strangers!  Today we have a brand spankin' new Runway Inspired Challenge, this time inspired by Monique Lhuillier!

I am in love with this feminine dress...isn't it gorgeous!?  

I think made and re-made this card about 4 times before I was happy with it.  I felt like I couldn't get it to look the way it did in my head- has that ever happened to you?  Well anyway, I continued to play around with everything until I ended up with this:



After all of that work, I love how it turned out! First I stamped a Hero Arts map background stamp with grey ink on my card base, and covered it with vellum.  Then, I stamped a bunch of elements from Altenew's Vintage Flowers, and die cut them with the coordinating dies.  I tried my best to get the colors to match the inspiration dress.

Once it was all arranged the way I liked it, I adhered it to the card with foam tape.  Lastly, I added the sentiment, which is from Altenew's Sketchy Cities America.
