An {Inkspiration} Inspiration Challenge #9

Hello There!!!! I've been wanting to sit down and make a card for Keesh's Inkspiration Inspiration Challenge all week (That's actually quite a mouthful isn't it!!!! hahahaha), and I've finally managed to do so.

This weeks Keesh set an Inspiration challenge, and let me tell you... It was quite a toughy too... well for me anyway. I sat and looked at the Inspiration piccy for ages, and ages, and AGES and in the end I finally managed to come up with something:-

Here is the picture we had as our inspiration piece:-

It's a lovely picture, but I just couldn't figure out what to use and how to go about getting started. The more I looked at the picture though the more my eyes kept getting drawn toward the 'Chair' at the back of the picture and the circles in it's backrest... I know WIERD huh!!!! So that's where I started. I grabbed my Circle Circus set and stamped a background piece in Choc Chip Ink onto some Kraft cardstock, I then layered that with some Choc Chip and whisper White onto my base layer of Pink Pirouette. Then I used my NEW 'Party Hearty' set and stamped me a cupcake with Choc Chip and Pink Pirouette and added a little Choc Chip flower from my Felt Fusions Too tin. The sentiment is in Choc Chip and is from Party Heart too. Then I added a bow in some yummy Pink Pirouette ribbon and that's pretty much it.

I think I've just scraped in, in the nick of time with this one... Sorry Keesh!!!!

Hope you like. And hopefully I'll be back soon with some more MOJO and more cards to show you.

Thanks for stopping by.


Here's what I used:-

Stamps:- Circle Circus, Party Hearty
Pink Pirouette, Kraft, Choc Chip, Whisper White

Choc Chip, Pink Pirouette

Pink Pirouette Ribbon, Felt Fusion Too, Brad, Dimensionals.
