I played with my Beyond Borders stamps and worked my way up the card.

*I Heart Papers Mint Motif Beyond Borders,Flourishes He is Risen, Memento ink rich cocoa,Staz-On pumpkin and red,Piggy Tales DP,Scor-Tape 1/2",Georgia Pacific white cardbase*

Doesn't it look like a dress?

Hence this is my first submission to Runway Inspired.

 Challenge #7

The backdrop of blue really pops the red. 

My "belt" serves the same purpose.

See my modern "bow"? 

I took the remaining piece of my strip of blue and folded it over and over and bent it to pop up.

I chose my colors for Color Throwdown 182.

I love these colors together!

Finally, I was welcomed to

"We'd love for you to use it to play along with us, but if you are working on another project that has scripture or an encouraging quote, you can share that too." 

 I feel the awesome sentiment is the bodice...right where my heart is!



  1. Love the card in its simplicity. It does, indeed, look like a dress and the belt is the perfect way to accessorise it :o)

    I hope that you enjoy Word Art Wednesday as much as I do
