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.
