Runway Inspired Birthday Card

Good afternoon! I meant to post this earlier today - but somehow the time got away from me!

I made this for the current Runway Inspired Challenge:

I didn't notice until I was done that I missed the blue shades in the dress, but oh well! I made a watercolor background by just swiping my brush across the paper. Once that dried, I heat embossed Unity Stamp Co. Candles and Cake {wit and wisdom} stamp over the top.

I used some pattern paper from American Crafts for the background, and flicked some watercolor paints on it to pull together the colors on the front, as well as some black Heidi Swapp Color Shine. Matted everything in black, added some gold Smooch Glitz to the edges of everything, and added some jute twine topped with a cute little bow from Michael's that I picked up recently.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful afternoon!
