Runway Inspired Challenge #44 - Zuhair Murad

It's been a while since I made a card for the Runway Inspired Challenge. I love this dress it is so delicate.


 I have used shantung silk backed with interfacing for the die cut leaves. It cut really cleanly, the interfacing is the secret here. It is shiny in the light, and much darker and matte coloured out of the light. The photo doesn't really show that gorgeous silk sheen.



Stamp:- Penny Black 2716F
Die:- Clearly besotted Leafy Accents PTI Hexagon cutout. Martha Stewart butterfly Punch.
Card:- Bazzill Basics White.



Another card made.



Have a wonderful week.

Wow, Karen! Your two cards knocked this challenge out of of the ball park! I adore the blue that you chose and the layering with images and vellum are superb! I can't decide which one I like better!! So glad that you join the fun with us at Runway Inspired Challenge!
