Wrong Side of the Bed


Old Man Winter must have gotten into an argument with Mother Nature last night because he purely woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning. Father Time is against me as I have to travel a ways to get to work this morning on some pretty bad roads stuck with ice and snow...I'll make this short!


There was a pretty modern inspiration picture over on the Runway Inspired Challenge, so my card design is pretty graphic and modern as well. I was drawn to the colors and her dress, pulling in the dull grey, green, purples and blue. I also pulled from the design of the vines and the white overlays in her dress so that is where my main image comes from. I was also drawn to the bag handle and colors.

Supplies:
Cardstock: (Soft Stone) PTI, (White) Office Max
Stamps: (Falling for You) Practicing Creativity Designs, (Mega Mixed Messages) PTI
Fiber: (Green Burlap String) May Arts
Other: (Markers) Copic
Tools: (Eyelet Border) PTI

Be safe... I looked at that stamp last night when looking for inspiration for this challenge and passed, now I'm thinking I might have to CASE your idea...

Great card! As always, I love the clean layout and your great eye for design.

Stay safe on the roads. We lucked out with a little ice on the roads but the sun is already melting it.
