Runway Inspired Thank You and My Talented Niece


Hi there.  We are having a super busy week here...so I'm popping in really quickly to share a card for the Runway Inspired Challenge. I loved the plaid and used my Hero Arts Envelope Background stamp to stamp a plaid inspired pattern.  Kept it ultra CAS!

Now...I have to have a bragging moment on my niece, Elizabeth.  She is an amazingly talented oil painter.  Look at this gorgeous ballerina that she painted.  Isn't is absolutely beautiful?  I am in awe of her talent!!  And I adore the monochromatic feel of this.  So stunning.
