Runway Inspired Challenge # 94

An extremely quick blog post as I can hardly keep my eyes open but need to get this posted before I miss the deadline.....(spent most of the day gardening, I'm exhausted....).

When I saw this photo for the Runway Inspired Challenge I knew I had to take part. The reason being is that I could see the card design in my head within minutes of seeing the photo, so that has to be good!

I diecut a rose from vellum 7x and very carefully adhered it to my card with very tiny pieces of double sided tape. After cutting off the overhang I die-cut the 'thanks' 3x from white CS, glued them all together and adhered to a strip of white CS. This was glued over the flowers and clear sequins added for shine.

The rose die is from Paper Smooches. The clear sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh and the 'thanks' die is from Clearly Besotted.

I'm also going to link this to the Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge  where their theme is 'Anything Goes'.

And will also link to the Simon Says Stamp - Work it Wednesday where their theme is 'Thank you cards'.

I'm off to bed. Max is playing his first tennis game in the morning at 8.45am. I'm usually only just getting out of bed at this time on a Saturday morning as I tend to stay up till around 3am making cards. Will have to try and take it easy tomorrow (no gardening!!) so I can stay up late on Saturday night. 

Although just remembered that the final of the Rugby World Cup is on at 4am Sunday morning. Its New Zealand against Australia, so will be an amazing game. My Mum is Australian and I've always supported her team since I was little, so even though I should be saying 'All Blacks, All Blacks', I'll end this post with 'Aussie Aussie Aussie'!!!!!!!!

Take care
