365 Cards Ad Inspiration Challenge!

Hey folks. Today's challenge over at 365 Cards is an Ad Inspiration challenge. I was lucky enough to get to pick our ad for today. Here is what I found in my mailbox last week:

Now, I have ALWAYS loved black and white. My bedroom was decorated like that for years (at my parents house). They are my go-to colors for my wardrobe and there is just something extra special about it when you have a pop of color! This entire catalog is so much fun to look through. It has a nice 20's edge to it too which I also adore. Ok, enough chat... Here is my card for today:
It speaks for itself eh? I don't have anything to share about it really, other than I loved making it. I had some really great products that went wonderfully with the inspiration, so it pulled together quickly. One thing I did do that might need explaining, is I double stamping the leaves to give them some shadow. I used Old Olive first and then stamped the Fresh Snow on top. I like the dimension it gives.
I used a white colored pencil on the flower inside and traced the circles with a bowl for my arches. I thought that would fit the curve of the shoe from the ad nicely. I thought this sentiment was perfect too. It's the kind of thing I would think a flapper girl would say. That kind of fit the entire catalog genre to me. Very fabulous indeed.

Ok. That's all my friends. I hope you find this image inspiring and get a chance to create today. Be sure to head on over to 365 Cards to link up your creations and I will come back tonight to check them all out!
Have a great day. Over and out...
