Be Inspired #27

I had a really tough time with this week's Inspiration Challenge. I think the pattern on the scarf was throwing me off, so I decided to just go with the colors and forget the pattern! LOL I still have LOTS of last year's In Colors left. I still LOVE them! :) I used Purely Pomegranate and River Rock for this card. I used the Textile Cuttlebug folder on the background and highlighted parts of it with a white gel pen. I stamped the Watercolor Pressed Flowers by Paper Inspirations in Purely Pomegranate and River Rock for a shadow effect. The sentiment is from the Happy Greetings set by Hero Arts. You can find the stamps and the Cuttlebug folder at Stamper's Dream.


Make sure you stop by to see what Beate, Danielle Lounds, Dawn McVey, Jennifer Buck, Silke Ledlow and Susan Roberts have been inspired to create today. I'm sure they will ALL be just gorgeous! Thanks for stopping by today and have a great day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Watercolor Pressed Flower (Paper Inspirations), Happy Greetings (Hero Arts); Paper- Purely Pomegranate, River Rock, Chocolate Chip (SU); Ink- Purely Pomegranate, River Rock, Chocolate Chip (SU); Accessories- Textile Cuttlebug folder (Provocraft), white gel pen, small oval punch, Chocolate Chip satin ribbon (SU); Finished card measures 5.5"x4.25"
