Beautiful You

Hello All,

Today I would like to play along with Time Out Challenge and Color My Heart Color Dare. Now I am not one to be a fashionista but I saw the Time Out challenge and thought of a digi stamp I bought a while ago. It embodies beauty, class, style and I love it!!! Here is my card for today, enjoy!

I love this image from A Day for Daisies. She is so pretty and that dress is something else.
The stamp is titled 'Hepburn's Dress' and I had no idea what Audrey Hepburn's dress looked like. Was it a famous dress? I had no idea.
All I found were black dresses! I also wanted to fit into Color Dare so I changed the iconic dress color to a dark pink hue. I think it works better for the design to add a splash of color.
The design needed some movement in the background as it does on the dress. So I enhanced the design by creating a diagonal divide. All I did was cut around the bottom of the dress and added a black stripe. Then layer the sage color under the dress.
The sentiment came from two different dies. The word 'beautiful' comes from Tim Holtz and the word 'you' from SU. I thought angling the 'beautiful' was a nice touch to continue the diagonal line across the card. 
Challenges Entered:
I chose Pomegranate, Sugarplum, and Sage

 

Thank you so much for stopping by and I do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. I hope you all have a fantastic day and lots of good crafting vibes headed your way.

What a fantastic image! You have done wonders with the coloring of that fantastic dress. I am sure Audrey had a red dress or two. She would have loved this one! I love the way you dicided the background colors by the lines of her skirt. Fantastic design. Thanks so much for sharing this beauty and playing with us at Time Out.

Lovely design, Shauna! I really like that you placed the sentiment at an angle following the skirt. Very clever. Thank you for playing along at Color My Heart Color Dare.
