RIC#30 - Erdem

First of all - thanks you everybody for the overwhelming response I got on my blog entry from 2/23 - the paper pieced card. I got sooooo many lovely comments. Thanks for visiting my blog and taking the time to leave a comment. It means so much for me and is so encouraging.

And here comes my favorite challenge again - The Runway Insipred Challenge #30. Don't you just love these dresses and the gorgeous way they are photographed?



I used yellow background paper and a Martha Stewart border punch. I immediately thought about this punch when I saw the picture. The small butterflies I made with a Memory Box die, coloring a strip of watercolor paper (see below). The bigger butterflies are Martha Stewart as well. The sentiment is Hero Arts Fancy Script Messages. 
I think I captured the dresses, but I am not totally happy with the way the card looks. Perhaps I should have tried more to incorporate the shabby wall somehow? Perhaps I should have chosen a different background for the photo? What do you think? Maybe I give it another try later.

This card is beautiful, and that border punch is just perfect.

Oh wow ... could there ever be a more perfect punch to use? And I like that you have the crisp, clean colors in your card (vs. the textured wall).

Ohhh..Cornelia, you have done so wonderful creations here, love that you combine designs of both the outfits, love the butterflies. I guess its perfect. All the very best. :-)

Really cool! It was SO smart of you to use that border punch...I actually couldn't figure out what you did until you mentioned it! Great card. Thanks for joining us on the Runway!
