My Time to Inspire Challenge

Wow I can't believe it's Saturday already! This week it's My Time to Inspire challenge and it's being hosted by the lovely and talented Kristin Bueter. I love the inspiration challenges because you can do whatever you are inspired to do! It might be the colors that inspire you, it might be an element in the challenge photo, it might be the feel or the theme. The idea is to play along and show us how you were inspired by this piece. Please link your creation to Mr. Linky so we can see what you create. Remember, Lauren Meader is featuring the top five from each challenge in her "My Time to Shine" segment and it could be YOU!

I loved this week's inspiration piece - the colors, the flowers - so clean and fresh. I've been running real short on time and on thank you cards lately so I kept this one simple, clean and sweet. I used the colors and the flowers as my primary source of inspiration. I did not add ribbon or embellishments but did a bit of Cuttlebug for texture.

Paper: PTI - Spring Rain, White, Dark Chocolate

Stamps: PTI - With Sympathy (see it doesn't have to be a sympathy card but that's one magnificent flourish!) I added two additional flourishes near the top from Fancy Flourishes. Sentiment from Mega Mixed Messages. I added the dots under the sentiment - one of my favorite stamps I own are those little dots! It's from Wishing You.

Ink: PTI Dark Chocolate

Misc: white embossing powder to make the flowers and butterfly stand out.

Hop on over to the rest of the Design Team and see what they have come up with. I promise they will inspire you. Then come play along and be sure to link up with us.
