Runway Inspired Challenge #4

I decided to give the new Runway Inspired Challenge Blog a shot and I created this card:

Here is the runway shot that they gave us for inspiration:

Obviously the rainbow colors stand out, and also that neat triangle bag stood out for me. I took the colors in order from the dress, cut one inch strips, glued them down to a piece of cardstock, and then cut it all with the PTI banner builder die.

To bring in even more rainbow, I tied several multi colored strips of Amuse ribbon into the knot. I got this idea from an Amuse swap that I went to last year, and I thought it was a great idea for scraps of ribbon, and it makes such a statement!

I colored the worm with Copics, and made the "sand" with dots in 3 different colors. I stamped out the sentiment and used an SU label punch to cut it out.

I think it turned out to be a very cute and festive birthday card!

The set I used is from Paper Smooches, and the embossing folder is from SU. I mentioned all other supplies above. I had a lot of fun deciding how to create this card, I bet you'll be seeing me over at the Runway Inspired Challenge again ;)
