runway inspired challenge #75

Hello, hello!  I'm so happy that I had a chance to be at my craft table today.  It gave me a chance to unwind, relax a bit, and make this card, which I'm submitting to the Runway Inspired Challenge.

My card is based on this dress.  Oooh, so pretty!!!

I was inspired by the bright pink and the swooshiness of the dress.  I made the pink curves by using a curved die to create masks for each section.  Time consuming, yet lots and lots of fun.

I then finished it off with my sentiment and a sparkly ampersand.  On the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment "I'm so grateful".

Thanks for checking this out!

Stamps: Mama Elephant So Many Thanks
Dies: WPlus9 Sparkle and Shine Trio
Inks: Tim Holtz Distress Ink (picked raspberry); Versafine (champagne)
Other: white embossing powder, sequins
