Runway Inspired Challenge #56

Hi everyone! Can you believe it's time for the new Runway Inspired Challenge?! This week we have a bold and colourful inspiration look for you:

source: style.com

And here’s my card:


I wanted to try and create something to mimic this symmetric pattern with geometric shapes from the skirt and I just realised that it reminds me of Polish folk art called “wycinanki”. A few years ago I created THIS CARD from the scratch and it was a really hard and time consuming, so this time I decided to be cheeky and I've used free patterns I found on the web (I have to say I did let out a little squeal when I saw them! *wink*)

I hope you're inspired to play along! Make sure to visit the Runway Inspired Challenge blog for all the details on how to enter and what you can win!

If you're looking for more inspiration then please check out what the rest of the team came up with for this challenge:
