Be Inspired #23

This week's Inspiration Challenge was very crisp and clean to me. As much as I wanted to add Chocolate Chip ribbon, I refrained in order to keep the light and clean feel of the inspiration piece. I used the Bugs and Blooms set from Memory Box and the Happy Greetings set from Hero Arts. You can find them both at Stamper's Dream. I just LOVE the Bugs and Blooms set with all of its bugs, of course, but I couldn't figure out what these images were until I actually stamped them! LOL Each side of the leaf is a different stamp, so you can create a two-toned leaf. Now that I know what it is, I think I'll be using it more often! :) I added that tiny caterpillar next to the sentiment. . .did you notice him? He's so tiny and cute! Make sure you stop to see what Beate, Danielle Lounds, Dawn McVey, Jennifer Buck, Silke Ledlow and Susan Roberts have come up with for the challenge. . .I'm sure they'll all be wonderful! Thanks for stopping by today and have a great day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Bugs and Blooms (Memory Box), Happy Greetings (Hero Arts); Paper- Crate Paper, white (Georgia-Pacific), Chocolate Chip (SU); Ink- Certainly Celery, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip (SU); Accessories- Celery wide grosgrain (SU), rhinestone brads (Darice); Finished card measures 4.25" square
