I'm finally all caught up with this month's Viva la Verve sketches.  This card uses the sketch from week #2 (below).  To pair some more inspiration with this fabulous sketch, I decided to try the current Runway Inspired Challenge fashion piece (RIC22) (below).  I really loved the neutral tones combined with the bold stripes of the outfit, so I tried to incorporate those into the card.

About the Card
The base is an A2 in kraft followed by layers of Riding Hood Red and DP from Teresa Collins - Christmas Cottage paper pad.  The images from Verve's Glad Tidings were printed onto kraft using Fired Brick distress ink and cut out by hand or using Verve's Snowflake Tidings dies.  They were further embellished with red rhinestones.  The sentiment, also from Verve's Glad Tididngs, was stamped on DP and cut out with Verve's Mini Vintage Oval dies.  Brads and some rich satin ribbon were added for bling!!
