CAS(E) this runway...

Hi guys!

How you all doing?  I hope you're all well and I'm sure you're looking forward to the weekend ;)

I have made a card for CAS(E) this sketch AND Runway Inspired Challenge - I think this is only the second time I've felt brave enough to play along with RIC!  The colours and the graphic look of the fabric in the inspiration meant that I couldn't pass it up this time :)

I was looking for a stamp to make a card for the CAS(E) this sketch challenge and I couldn't find anything in my collection that I considered to be suitable for this wonderful sketch or one that was suitable for the type of card I needed to make.  Sooo...I decided that instead of using an image, I would go for stripes - I love stripes!

...'they' reckon you have one idea in your life and everything after that is just that same idea in another form...I have to agree!!  When I was uploading this photograph, I noticed that a few of my other cards in the folder had the same feel to them.  I'm sorry if it's getting a bit boring here!  Let me know and I'll do my best to jump out of my comfort zone...these cards just happen though!  Do you find that?!

Hopefully you can see where my inspirations came cool is that dress?!  And the sketch come to mention it :)  I may try and make another card for CASE) this sketch as this sketch has loads of potential!

Thank you so much for stopping by ;)

  1. "Boring and sameness' (I know - bad grammar) are two words that would never come to mind in looking at your cards! Unique and stunning, thought - that's a different story! I took a wee stroll through your site, and all I saw was variety, creativity, beauty. So, nope: boring doesn't live here! Your card here: awesome take on both the runway dress (want!) and CASE this Sketch! The colourful varying-width stripes, with the sentiment nestled in the midst is most eye-catching, just as the inspiration photo is. My view: winner on all counts! Have a happy Friday, and a big thank you for your warm comments on my blog! Day brightened!!
