Runway Inspired Challenge #17 and Hero Arts Sketch Challenge

Look at the gorgeous inspiration at the current Runway Inspired Challenge:



I was really inspired by the colors, the ruffles and the movement of the dress:

I chose this image from Hero Arts CL477 Delicate Leaf Cluster for the ruffled edges of the leaves.  After inking the stamp with Ranger spiced marmalade, dusty concord and peeled paint distress inks I very lightly sprayed with water before stamping on a piece of PTI rustic white cs.  Sentiment is from Hero Arts CL342 Everyday Sayings.  Butterflies were die cut from Stampin' Up pp using a Stampin' Up/Sizzix Beautiful Wings embosslit.
Other Materials Used:  Stampin' Up elegant eggplant cs, WPlus 9 banner die, Queen & Co pearls, W R Memory Keepers corner rounder

And since I used one of the challenge sketches I'm also going to put this in the current Hero Arts challenge.

Thanks for your lovely comments and have a great weekend!
