Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge #19

Hi Stamping Friends!!  It's Thursday and that means it's time to celebrate!!  I love to have a reason to stamp and being able to participate in the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge is just the the motivation I need to ink up my stamps.  If I didn't have this challenge and the ColourQ to "have to" stamp for, I think too many days would go by with no stamping done, and that would be so sad!!  My life is a blur at the moment with kid stuff, school stuff, church stuff, house stuff and stuff stuff.  I'm so glad I can take a moment to stamp, at least twice every week.
I love today's inspiration photos.  The sunflowers are so beautiful.  And I love the colors going on.  I wish I could say I love my card too, but it's lacking something and I haven't figured out what yet.  I tried adding stuff, but it didn't work, so I left it as is.


I like the colors and the papers and the flower.  I just think it needs more.  It's kind of boring.  Maybe the center of the flower should have been larger.  Maybe I should have had a black circle underneath the buttons.  I do love the buttons though.  I love all the Stampin' Up! buttons.  They are the best!!  And I also love my new Tasteful Trim die from the Holiday Mini Catalog.  Definitely a must have!  The sketch for this card comes from the 2 Sketches 4 You blog.  This is sketch #60.  It was the perfect sketch for the big sunflower I knew I wanted on my card.  Well, I guess you can't hit every ball out of the park.  What a bummer!  Now I'll just have to keep practicing!  :-)

I hope you can stop by the Stampin' Celebration Inspiration Challenge and play along with us this week.  You have until next Tuesday to upload your card.  We are always looking for more stampers to help us celebrate all of life's special moments!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!

Love the sunflower and the buttons! It's a good card! If YOU need it to look different, maybe more yellow? Or some rhinestones or pearls?
