Absolutely Brilliant

Hi ya, all! =) Here is a card that I made for Runway Inspired Challenge #43. Here is the inspiration style.


Here is my take on it.


I really like the colors yellow, black, grey and white together and used them as my starting point. Since the word "brilliant" is so intricate, I layered two die cuts together to add stability and make it easier to handle (Thanks to Jennifer McGuire for this awesome tip!). After gluing it on the card, I added Diamond Stickles to the word to add a little sparkle. Oh, and I forgot to add the two dots in the photos here. They have been added with a white gel pen in real life. =)


The patterned paper is from Park Bench 6x6 Paper Pad by Fancy Pants. The dies are from Simon Says Stamp.

That's all for now. Have a beautiful day, my friends! =)

Thanks for stopping by!
