RIC75 - Happy Birthday to You


Here's my card for the current Runway Inspired Challenge, where our inspiration is this Ralph Lauren dress:




For some reason my eye was drawn to the slit in the skirt, and that's what I focused on. I used a technique that Jacquie used on this card. I used a cut-up portion of a Grand Calibur circle Nestability rather than a die created specifically for this purpose. But the shape and idea is similar.

I'm not sure where the stamp comes from, but the die is from Papertrey.

So you're a leg girl, huh? It's so cool how people can see one photo and be inspired in a million different ways.

Love your slit, Ardyth! The sentiment fits perfectly and the line of gems really add the finishing touch.
