Blogger Challenge, Week #8



This week our theme was "Inspired by"....pick something - say a pattern in a piece of clothing, colors in a rug. Some design that inspires you to create a card or project.
Top card:
Cardstock: Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White
Inks: Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Certainly Celery
Accessories: Bazzill Bitty Blossoms, Rich Regals Brads, White Signo Gel Pen, Slit punch for scalloped edges
Stamp Sets: Pick a Petal, Absolutely Fabulous




The card I first did I didn't like too much and the 2nd on I did. I don't know why it takes me so long to do some of these cards, drives me crazy!!!! Anyway, I finished it this week and I was proud of myself. I have a few more cards I need to do so hoping this weekend proves to be semi-quiet.




My inspiration came from this Pottery Barn Kids bedspread.

Bottom Card:
Cardstock: Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, Not Quite Navy, Whisper White
Inks: Black Staz On, Certainly Celery, Regal Rose
Accessories: White Signo Gel Pen, Photo Corner Punch, Slit punch for scalloped edges, SU! Write Markers, Ribbon by American Crafts
Stamp Set: Pick a Petal and Simply Said

Kim, This was a really pretty card. I especially liked the scallops on the bottom of the card. The colors were so pretty & you did a great job recreating the look of the bed spread from your inspiration piece. Ida
