I just adore this look from Banana Republic...so ladylike, but in an update way!  Her accessories just rock - I totally want those shades and bag.  And the coordinating shoes!

I was mostly inspired by the color palette and florals, so I reached for the Beautiful Day stamp set from Altenew's latest release.   




I stamped the images using inks from our purple and blue color families.  Then, I cut them out and mounted them to a piece of Arches hot pressed watercolor paper that I painted with some quick swipes of color.  The sentiment was a mix from two sets - the "hello" from Bejeweled, and the "beautiful" from Beautiful Lady (both Altenew).

I used Desert Night ink for the outline and sentiment - I think this might be my new favorite sentiment ink, for when I want something different than black. It's nice and dark, and stamps so crisply.

Wow, just check out that gorgeous dress from Marchesa!  The colors, the lacy details, and those amazing shoes - this look is just incredible!

For my Runway Inspired Challenge card, I knew I wanted to incorporate the colors, a floral element, and texture.  I then remembered this old textured cardstock that I haven't used in at least a year, so I was happy to break that out :)





My sentiment is from this amazing stamp set which was created by Hero Arts in collaboration with Jennifer McGuire.  Jennifer recently launched an incredible challenge aimed at spreading kindness through handmade cards, gifts, notes, treats, etc.  You can find more info at sharehandmadekindness.com.

Please visit these gals from the DT to see what they created, and then head over to the Runway Inspired Challenge blog to play along! :)
