Happy Thursday, peeps! It's time for another Inspired By challenge, and we have a sponsor today---SRM Stickers! You can go to the IB blog for all the details....there might just be a giveaway! Anyway, let's get to my card today, and then see how I was inspired! It is FINALLY warming up here...it's almost summer-like, which is what I anticipated...cold, then right to hot! But I had this fun "spring" sticker and I couldn't help using it with some brightly-colored flowers and little bumblebees (also stickers):
I used some retired SU DSP in Pacific Point, Pretty in Pink and Bashful Blue to diecut some flower shapes, added some embossed centers and a little banner on which I added my spring sticker! I stamped a few little dots here and there and added a wee little punched flower in Strawberry Slush as well. And here is Laurel's challenge...it's hard to see, but there are unicorns on the pillows inside the tepee:
Unfortunately, I have no unicorn stamps, so I went with the bright colors and I used the Less is More sketch for this week:
On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from a past Paper Pumpkin kit, adding some stamped flowers and some more dots:
When I originally diecut my flowers, they were a bit too big, so I used next smaller die to cut another flower from each piece; the outside pieces were too fun to toss, so I made another card, this time using some more stickers for the stem and the center:
The stem looked a little bare, so I diecut a bow from Strawberry Slush cardstock, using the Everyday Jar framelits, then did a little shading with my blender pen to give it some dimension:
These are such fun colors, and such a cute inspiration photo, I hope you'll play along with us! Remember, there's a prize up for grabs too! Check it all out at Inspired By!
Tuesday was SO gorgeous, I stopped everything I was doing at home and took a jaunt to Longwood Gardens; it was a riot of color, inside and out:
and a silly selfie of me....still figuring out how to do that with my camera, LOL! But what a reminder of how great our God is, creating all this beauty for us to enjoy!
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
