Be Inspired #19

Beate is back with her weekly challenges! It has seemed like forever since I did one of these and it was probably only a month ago! LOL It was uncanny how the inspiration piece had some new In Colors in it. . .especially when Beate picked it a couple of months ago! I thought Tangerine Tango and Kiwi Kiss were perfect for this challenge. The flowers and vase stamps can be found at Stamper's Dream. The sentiment is from a Hero Arts set that can also be found at Stamper's Dream. I don't know about you, but I can't wait to see what Beate, Danielle Lounds, Dawn McVey, Jennifer Buck, Silke Ledlow and Susan Roberts have come up with for the inspiration challenge. I'm sure they'll all be fabulous! Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Violet Bouquet and Tall Vase (Memory Box), Happy Greetings (Hero Arts); Paper- Tangerine Tango, Kiwi Kiss (SU), gray (DCWV), white (Georgia-Pacific); Ink- Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko); Accessories- Copic markers, paper piercer, Basic Black marker (SU); Finished card measures 4.25"x5.5"
