Runway Inspired Challenge #39

I've always been intrigued by the Runway Inspired Challenges.  The inspiration pieces are incredibly unique and the design teams' creations always leave me in awe.  Though I have followed the challenge for a long time, I've never actually made a card for it, so  this week I resolved that I would at least try.
RIC #39: Clover Canyon Resort 2014
There were so many great patterns on this week's inspiration piece, that I wasn't sure what to pull from that would be different than the DT's cards, and in the end I went with the layout of the dress....just tipped horizontally.  I kept most of the same colors and even mimicked the stripes on the belted area with the embroidery floss.  I tried to sneak in some of the turquoise, but it just didn't work, so in the end that got removed.  I like that this challenge inspired me to do something different, something I probably wouldn't normally do.  Eek!  I just looked at the time...better hurry and submit this before I miss the deadline. :)  Thanks for stopping by!
