Hey all! Lil’ Inker Designs is sponsoring this weeks Runway Inspired Challenge, and I couldn’t help myself – I just had to play along!
I also found myself in need of a birthday card, so I pulled out a set that I didn’t use from the latest LID release, Spot On Spring. Perfect timing too since the challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp is Happy Birthday!
I used some old gridline paper to create a colorful, busy pattern inspired by the RIC challenge image. The best thing about this set is that it’s a companion to the Darling Diamonds and Spot On sets! Perfect when I needed a gray to ground all the color.
The colors are all Hero Arts – Pale Tomato, Fresh Peach, Mint Julep, Soft Pool & Soft Granite. The On the Diagonal die left the perfect spot to add a big focal sentiment. It also kind of mimics the LOVE word bubble with the dark line following it on the dress. It is pieced from Spot On Spring and Sugar Kissed Cottage: Surprise! I use that birthday sentiment a ton because of it’s size and will be using it even more now. Don’t you just love the mixture of the fonts?!
I can’t get enough of the Spring Flowers dies. I simply adore that flower shape! The button center doesn’t have a flat back though, so I had to punch holes in the flower centers to fit it through. I fluffed up the petals by scoring along the stitch line and folding them a bit. One last addition is a sweet little vellum butterfly with baker’s twine antennae from the new Stitched Butterflies.
Thanks for bopping on by! Hope you’re all having a wonderful week!
