Basket of Blooms - Inspiration Challenge


Today I'm knee deep in Dirty Dozen projects, and thought I'd take a break and play in the Splitcoaststampers Inspiration Challenge. Today's challenge uses the website "Flutter" to jump start your brain; we were to use any object we liked from the website to start our cards with. OH MAN, I could get LOST in that store for HOURS! I used this "Posie" bouquet pillow for my inspiration. I started with red cardstock for my border, and embossed Autumn Leaves Swirls all over the edge of the card, to simulate the lace from the pillow. Then I borrowed an Anna Wight Whippersnapper stamp from a friend, called "Basket of Blooms" for the focal image. You can see all of the creations for this challenge HERE at Splitcoast. Lots of cool cards! I have to go back to FLUTTER and play again this weekend. WHAT FUN!
Supplies: Basket of Blooms (Whippersnapper) October Afternoon Hometown polka dot paper, Copics: Dark Pink, Robins Egg Blue, Pale Sepia, Golden Yellow, Lipstick Red, Warm grey 2, cyanine blue, pale olive, spring dim green, Bazzill & May Arts brown gingham ribbon, black brilliance ink.

A lot of nice cards on the SC link, but your card outshines the others, hands down! Very colorful, happy, bright, delightful...
