Runway Inspired Challenge #64: Bottega Veneta

This is my first time playing over at the Runway Inspired Challenge - I just couldn't resist the totally fabulous dress for ric#64 ...

I was so inspired by the soft floral print with the punch of the black lace on the bodice. After playing around a bit, this is what I ended up with ...

I chose quite a strong black and white patterned paper for the layer cut with PTI's Tipped Top die. I decided that it needed a layer of vellum on top to soften it a bit. My flowers are all from PTI Friendly Flowers,  and the sentiment is from Winnie & Walter The Big The Bold and The Happy. I created a Silhouette cut file for the "happy" part. I also heat embossed the large flower with Zing Blush embossing powder.

Other Supplies:

Cardstock: PTI Stamper's Select White, Soft Stone
Inks: PTI Smokey Shadow; Fresh Ink Celery, Grapefruit, Blue Sage, Silver Lilac, French Lavender
Other: Prima pearls
