ric#77 Birthday



I just love the inspiration photo for this week's Runway Inspired Challenge #77.  This is my take:


The sunburst die cut is Paper Smooches. It is mounted on vellum which is mounted on a cream colored panel which is mounted on Going Gray.  Hibiscus die cuts are from Memory Box, and the sentiment is PTI. I used distress inks to color the sunburst die cut, and added a little glimmer mist for some shine.  The tips of the stamen on the hibiscus flowers are dipped in glue and then in tiny yellow no hole glass beads.  The exciting thing is that all of these supplies have been lying in the depths of my stash for a long time without any love.  I love how they all worked together in this creation.

Thank you so much for coming by today.
