You Inspire Me




Happy Tuesday...Before I get to my card for today, I have to share a couple photos from our night out with Sara and Andrew. We had a great time at dinner and the Reds game.  At the Reds game, there was a guy they highlighted on the big screen a few times.  Hilariously dressed and dancing his head off.  So when we saw him at the bar after the game...we, of course, had to ask for a picture with him.  Can you tell we're having a good time?  It was so great to see Sara and Andrew again...here's hoping our show choir schedules overlap again this year so that we don't go too long in between visits!  And here's one of us at the Reds game...


Now...onto a card for the day!  For the current Runway Inspired Challenge, I wanted to capture a few elements...the stripes...the shine on her sun glasses and the pop of pink on her shows.  So, I adhere a few strips of paper to white cardstock and die cut the flourish.  I then inked up the flourish and embossed it to give it a bit of shine.  I thought the sentiment was perfect for the inspiration :) and added a few touches of pink gems to finish it off.
