Runway Inspired

Hello all. I'm sitting here relishing in the quietness of this last morning of summer for my kids. They're all still asleep today, tomorrow at this time things will be hopping. For the first time ever I am not ready for school to start. With four kids I am usually counting down the days and this year it has snuck up on me. I'm not a fan of this starting school before Labor Day schedule...really wanting the old schedule back.

Today I have a card to share with you that was made for the latest challenge over on the Runway Inspired site. I've been purging some older scrapbook kits that I have had laying around and am trying to use some of the items that I find I am still drawn to. For the base of this card I cut down a sheet of ruffled crepe paper from the Dear Lizzy line. The ruffles were too far apart for me to get all three colors on the card base so I cut them into separate strips and placed them closer together, fortunately the ruffles hide all of this.


The flower stamps are from Altenew's new Golden Garden set. I started by stamping them all on watercolor paper. Then painted them in using Zig Clean Color markers. Lastly I fussy cut them all out and adhered them onto the card front. The missing you sentiment is a stamp from Altenew's Label Love stamp set. Topped it all off with a couple of sparkly jewels.
