Be Inspired #25

Time for another one of Beate's Inspiration Challenges! Today's was tough for me because of the muted colors. Instead of using the colors to come up with my card, I started with the color blocking. I decided on Kraft, Baja Breeze and So Saffron for the colors. As far as the branches, this was the only tree/branch image I own that I thought would work. It's from the Frightful Night set from Taylored Expressions. Never thought you'd see this tree in such a serene setting, huh? LOL I added Cotton Candy Stickles to give the hint of pink leaves. The sentiment is from the Absolutely Fabulous set.



Don't forget to stop by and see what Beate, Danielle Lounds, Dawn McVey, Jennifer Buck, Silke Ledlow and Susan Roberts have come up with for this challenge. I can't wait to see! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps-Frightful Night (Taylored Expressions), Absolutely Fabulous (SU); Paper- Kraft (PTI), Baja Breeze, So Saffron (SU); Ink- Burnt Umber (Palette); Accessories- paper piercer, duo satin ribbon (May Arts); Finished card measures 4.25" square
