Making the Best of It

It's day 5 of the hubby being away which means not much time to craft, but let me tell you when the kids are finally in bed I WILL make the best of the little time I have to myself!  The next Runway Inspired Challenge had beautiful colors that I would have never thought paired well together.  My challenge was to get it right on the card.  I used this week's CAS(E) this Sketch to help in the design department.

Hero Arts You and Me, Sizzix Embossing Folder, American Crafts Twine, My Clever Creations button, pearl, Memento Tuxedo Black ink, White and gray CS

Here's the sketch...

I used the words to represent the 3 flowers.
And the model...

The color combination comes from RIC and so does the patterns.  I had the perfect button in the perfect shade to represent the model's handbag!  That's it for me...I'm back oncall again so this may be the last post from me til Friday...*sigh.  Hope everyone's week is off to a great start and as always MAHALO for stopping by!


  1. Cute...love the You & Me...and the embossing!

  2. Hello Nik~
