Runway Inspired Challenge #53

Oh, how I love the Runway Inspired Challenges!  Fashion inspiration is such a personal interpretation and the design team NEVER fails to display that! This one was quite a challenge for me and perhaps I took it too literally, but I think it worked. 
As soon as I saw the lace element in the dress, I reached for an oldie but goodie Hero Arts stamp, Lace Frame.  I stamped and black embossed it on the purple cardstock.  For the center portion of the stamped image, I used a Spellbinder die to cut it out, so I could stamp the sentiment.  Another Hero Arts stamp, Special Time, was embossed in gold. I love this font - it looks lovely with the lace. I mounted that whole piece onto black cardstock.

I knew the background had to be lattice, so I took the Hero Arts Lattice Background and stamped it in black on the same cardstock, cut it into four equals portions, and mounted it on a black card base.

For the final touch, as in the dress, I used gold and teal sequins to bring out those color elements.  

I will definitely use the die cut technique with the lace stamp again.  It really matches the frame perfectly. 

Thanks RIC for another fun challenge!

What a lovely interpretation, Marcy, much more wearable than the actual dress, imo! :)) Beautifully done!
