BCBG Friend


I went a little crazy with the pattern on my card for the latest Runway Inspired Challenge.  I zeroed in on the little vertical stripes along the bottom of the dress and used strips of card to make similar stripes.  I originally intended to just use one strip like on the dress but then I started playing around with the strips and kind of dug this fun pattern.  So I used all of them! The matted panel is inspired by the shoes and I thought it needed a very simple sentiment to finish it off - this Paper Smooches one fit the bill perfectly! 


Linking this up at Simon Says Stamp too!
