YOU are loved!



Hi friends.  Today's card is for a few challenges.  The first is Runway Inspired Challenge.  Here is the photo inspiration:




I took my inspiration from her dress and was drawn to the black flowers flowing up one side.  I was also inspired by her bright, red, shiny lipstick and just had to add that element to my card too.  I die cut the You die from Simon Says Stamp from Real Red cardstock and then covered it in versamark, heat embossed with clear embossing powder to give it the shine.  I got my inspiration for that technique from Ashley over at PTI blog.  Here is the link to her video.

I am also entering this card in CASology's cue card challenge.  The cue card is:


Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

Cardstock:  Whisper White, Real Red, Black
Ink:  Memento black. versamark
Stamps:  Expressions for you (Simon Says Stamp)
Accessories:  Lorelai Leaf die, Expressions for you die (SSS), Clear embossing powder
