I love craft challenges and there are many which I consider to be a little higher than my standard. My goal is to create a project that will get selected in one of these challenges :D Runaway Inspired Challenge is one of them. The inspiration pic was so beautiful that I couldn't not make a card for it!! It was a lacy bridal dress and here's what I made for it:



Here's the inspiration pic:



I was inspired by the lace and the fact that it was bridal. I stamped and embossed the ODBD Crocheted Lace background stamp with white embossing powder on vellum. I adhered it on light grey cardstock.



I stamped, embossed and fuzzy cut the roses and leaves from the Winnie & Walter - The Big, the Bold and the extras set on vellum.  These are one of my favorite flower stamps in my stash. Since the inspiration was bridal, I couldn't stop myself from adding a bouquet of vellum flowers :)



The sentiment and the frame, from JustRite Stamps' Happy Ever After Antique Labels stamps set are stamped and embossed with white on vellum. I fuzzy cut it and sponged the backside with grey ink, so that it will be more visible.

So what are your thoughts on this?

Thanks for stopping by. Do let me know your thoughts and comments.

Wow, this is so stunning! Very elegant. I think the touch of grey on the back of the sentiment is perfect to pop the sentiment. Very elegant.
