Thinking of you

Hi all. Have you checked out the RIC#38 - Burberry Prorsum Resort challenge this week? It was a love at first sight with the outfit. Wow, sober colours brilliantly executed. So I had to get my hands on my stash to create a card for the challenge. Here it is.

I first found paint chips with the closest colours to match the outfit. The skirt had a little embossed effect, so I scored a paintchip with my scoring board and then inked the surface with white pigment ink to enhance the texture. Then I heat embossed other paintchip with white embossing powder using the quatrefoil Background rubberstamp from stampabilities. The peach colour bag inspired the little flower on the card.

The layout of this card is cased from the retrosketches challenge # 68 this week.

I am also submitting this card for this week's CFC # 106 - Over the edge this week.The flower over the edge can be seen more clearly in the front view below

Hope you liked my card. Your opinion about the card matters. Thank you for peeking in.
