Happy Leap Day, everyone! I must say, even though February is the shortest month of the year, it feels like this month will NEVER end! I am happy to turn the calendar to March tomorrow!
I was reading my latest Southern Living magazine and came across this ad for some bedding from The Company Store:
The colors intrigued me, and since I needed a birthday card, I decided to try to replicate the design. In hindsight, I wish I had used Marina Mist instead of Lost Lagoon, but otherwise, I am happy with it:
The card base is Smoky Slate, and I used Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon, Mint Macaron, Mossy Meadow and Cameo Coral for my ink colors. I outlined each floral image on the background with a white gel pen (and I see I missed one at the top...boo). The stamps I used were Flower Patch, Endless Thanks and Summer Silhouettes along with a sentiment from Remembering Your Birthday, and I used the sketch from Create with Connie & Mary:
I used Cottage Greetings for the inside, stamping the flowers in Basic Black and using a blender pen and ink to color them in:
Do you ever get inspiration from pictures or people's clothing (that happens to me in church, LOL!)? I am interested in hearing where others get their inspiration! Thanks so much for popping by today! And I don't think I ever shared this photo from Valentine's, when Cassidy lined up all her gifts. "Lovey" the hedgehog was by far the favorite, almost edging out Lambie for top billing!!!
