Inspiration Challenge 164

When it rains it pours! I haven't been able to post all week and then I post three times in one day! It may have something to do with the fact that my husband is gone this weekend and the kids have been feeding themselves all day. Mom's just been busy stamping! I wanted to play at least one of the SCS challenges on the day that it was posted and I always enjoy the Inspiration Challenge IC164. So I made sure I did that today. I also used another one of the sketches from Taylor Expressions Cupcake Challenge year anniversary. This time I used a sketch from Ana Wolfhart TECC52AW. This is the image that I was inspired by. I loved the soft, pretty colors and fun looking textures. My card however, went a little "wild". Instead of cutting into any new DSP, I decided to use scraps. The scraps I chose to use are from the retired SU! paper Bali Breeze. As much as I love this DSP, it doesn't have the same feel as this pretty image from Lang Calendars. So my flowers are a bit more bright and a bit more funky. Here's my card:
Definitely not "soft and pretty". More like "wild and funky"! You can see my three flowers coming out of the vase. That much is similar. Speaking of my vase... I'm so proud of that little bugger! I made him using my SU! Top Note die! Best investment any crafter could make is to purchase the Top Note Die. I can't wait to get my hands on the new SU! Butterfly die. If I already had it, there would be a butterfly on this card! But I'm waiting until Sale-A-Bration to place a BIG SU! order. Here's some of the supplies I used:
CARDSTOCK: Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Whipser White, Bali Breeze DSP (retired)
STAMPS: Petal Pizzazz, Wow Flowers
INK: Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Purely Pomegranate (retired)
ACCESSORIES: SU! Old Olive Brads, SU! Top Note Die
Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!
