Runway Inspired Challenge #23

Hello!

As soon as I saw the photo for Runway Inspired Challenge #23, I just knew I had to make a card. Apart from the crazy handbag, the black and white with a touch of red theme appealed, as did the circles and stripes. Just an aside here - after seeing the DT examples, I was feeling slightly intimidated, they are SUPER this week. I got over the intimidation, mostly...  :-)

I made two cards, just to see which one I liked better. The first is my entry.
This is the inspiration photo.
 
Back to that handbag... I don't think this handbag would fit in my car. If I could fit it through the door, it would need a seat for itself! Do you think anyone would actually carry this ANYWHERE? I like Chanel, but I'm hoping this handbag was just for theatrical effect on the runway, LOL! I do want those shoes for myself though, I LOVE them. :-)

Back on topic, here is the second card. Same as the first, only more red.
Both cards use PTI Heart-2-Heart #4 and Mama Elephant Basic Borders. Colours are Black, White, and Poppy Parade.

Thanks for coming by to visit.

I like them both--super fashionable phones. Great way to pull in the colors and the stripes and circle. I had already forgotten about this set, which was my favorite until I bought something else. You should not be intimidated by the DT. Your cards are terrific.

Oh wow! I love both of your retro phone cards. So adorable. Much cuter than the "hula hoop" purse!
