Runway Inspired Challenge ric#54

Today's card was created for this week's Runway Inspired Challenge. Here's the inspiration:

And here's my card:
To create this card, I used stamps from three different Simon Says Stamp kits. I stamped the line of circles onto white cardstock using five different color inks and adhered it to the card base. Next, I stamped the banner pattern and sentiment. After cutting it out, I adhered it to black cardstock and trimmed around it leaving a slight border. I tied the twine and adhered it to the card base using foam adhesive.

Here's a closer look:
This card went right in the mail to my nephew who just had his appendix out. Funny how a masculine card was inspired by a Diane Von Furstenberg dress!

Cardstock: Bazzill Card Shoppe;
Stamps: Simon Says Stamp (Thinking of Your --- circle stripe; Best Mom Ever -- banner; Happy Every Day -- sentiment);
Inks: Memento Luxe (Teal Zeal; Morocco); My Favorite Things (Lemon Drop; Gumdrop Green; Berrylicious); Memento (Tuxedo Black)
Twine: The Twinery (denim)

Wonderfully creative based on the inspiration photo. The sentiment is great. When he loves it we won't tell him it's all about a dress, tee hee! The black borders are a popping contrast and, once again, so beautifully inspired by the dress.
