Runway Inspired Challenge #43

Hello Peeps!! Haven't been around much. I started back to work and my creative time has dwindled. It is between exercising and creating right now. Unfortunately exercising has been winning out, though I would much rather be in my craft room!!

Today I am joining in on the Runway Inspired Challenge. The challenge was to use the image below as inspiration to create a card.

Here is the card that I created.

I started off with a white card stock base and stamped a grid pattern with a Prima stamp on the left in gray. (No, I did not stamp straight but I tried to cover it up with the yellow die cut. ShShhh!) Then I cut a 3 1/2" by 5 1/4" piece of black card stock and adhered it to the white base.

I used my Silhouette to die cut a piece of Stampin Up! "Summer Sun" card stock. Next I stamped a circle using an Avery Elle stamp and punched it out with a 1 3/4" circle. I then stamped the sentiment in gray on the circle and the "Sunshine" in orange zest on white card stock and cut it out.

The last thing I did was to layer everything on the card using foam adhesive. I like how it came out BUT I should have fussy cut the "Sunshine" sentiment. I just wanted to finish the card in time!!

Here is a closer look.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by and look at my card.
