Inkspiration Inspiration Challenge #14

Happy, Happy Friday!!!!

I'm a bit excited today, not only because it's time for Keesh's Inspiration Challenge, but because tomorrow is our SU! Regional event.... woo hoo.

I'll be sure to let you know lots of exciting news when it's all over.

Today is an Inspiration Challenge from Keesh, so be sure to play along.

Here is my card:-

And here is the Inspiration picture:-

Soooooo much possibility with this one... there's green, black, blue, kraft... all sorts.

I grabbed my main inspiration from the little cushion sitting at the front of the bed. I started my card with base of Basic Grey then layered some tempting turquoise and some Basic Grey DSP. Then added another panel of Tempting Turquoise and Basic Grey with my images stamped onto some Kraft. I used my Pocket Silouettes today (thought I'd give you all a break from my Circle Circus frenzy of late!!! hahaha), and I stamped that using my Whisper White Ink Pad. I added a little white button for some embelishment. The sentiment is layered in the same way as the rest of the card and I used my Basic Phrases again stamped in Whisper White for that, oh and added a little ribbon tag using my Kraft taffeta ribbon.

Be sure to pop on over to the other amazing Design Team Gals blogs for some more GORGEOUS inspiration:-

and of course KEESH

Thanks for stopping by.


Here's what I used:-

Stamps:- Pocket Silhouettes, Basic Phrases
Card:- Basic Grey Textured, Tempting Turquoise, Kraft

Ink:- Whisper White
Accessories:- Button Bouquet, Kraft taffeta ribbon.

Oh Love the simplicity of this one Sarah! The button and the tuck of ribbon really hit it off! Thanks for your inspiration this week, and sorry I missed you at regionals today.... my poor head just wouldn't allow me to get there! Hope you had fun though! Love Keesh x
