Runway Inspired, CAS-ual Fridays, Retro Sketches and Simon Says Stamp!

This month's Runway Inspired Challenge [graphic below] was the perfect excuse to get out my houndstooth stencil. I decided to use mists rather than inks.


Using this week's Retro Sketch, I masked off a portion of the card before misting the yellow. I then masked off the yellow to mist the pink strip.

I created the bow by using the smaller Loopsy Daisy die, assembling with a large rhinestone brad and spraying with Shimmer Goosebumps (I masked the rhinestone first). I am entering this in CAS-ual Fridays bling challenge, as well as Simon Says Stamp Diamond Jubilee, Crowns and Gems challenge. It's a very shimmery card!!

Thanks for stopping by!!
