Happy Monday to all,

I am popping in to share my card that was inspired by this week challenge at Runway Inspired.

Here is my card:

And here is the photo that inspired it:

I loved this 'CAS' dress and had to go to the website to get a closer look at the detail. Some of the lips and hearts are covered with beads and gems. This really got be thinking and I also loved Wida's DT card here-her beaded heart is just perfect!
I decided to go with the lips and stamped them in red and fussy cut them out. I then used liquid pearl to give them a shine-just like glossy lipstick. It is hard to see the gloss in the photo but IRL it really does look like lipstick. I just stamped the sentiments using Wida's card as inspiration for this and added a gem heart for the yellow you see in the photo and popped the lips up for dimension on a foam pad, after embossing the card with the linen embossing folder to add more texture. I tried out a number of different colour card bases and was amazed that I thought the bright yellow really worked!

That is me for today, have a good one, but before you pop off, here is Wida's card that helped inspire me:
