Work it, girl.


When I saw the sassy poses of the ladies on this Unity stamp I thought of the phrase, "Work it, girl!"  And, whenever I look at the Runway Inspired Challenge site, that RuPaul song, "Supermodel" pops into my head - "You better work!  Work it, girl!"  So what better challenge to use the phrase for than the RIC challenge!  Aside from RuPaul, my inspiration for the card came from the colours in the picture (green bag, mustard strap, purple sunglasses, white and beige dress) and the graphic background.  I couldn't find any stripes I liked so I went for the blue grid instead in keeping with the graphic feel.  The dots around the ladies are highlighted with lavender Stickles and the ladies themselves are covered in Glossy Accents (that green bag looks kinda shiny to me...).    I'm also going to enter this over at the Wee Memories Anything Goes challenge. 


I know my posts have been sporadic lately but I'm now officially going on a blogging break for a week or so.  Got a lot going on and am not going to be seeing the inside of the Craft Cave any time soon.  So before I go I just want to wish you the very happiest of holidays and sent out big festive hugs to all!
