BC159 - Tropical Inspiration
Don't forget to check out my Annabelle Challenge in the post below this one. We had a fun color challenge with a bit of a "twist" added.
It's FRIDAY and time for the Blogger Challenge. This weeks challenge is an Inspiration photo. Don't you just love how refreshing this room looks. The first thing that caught my attention were the leaf decorations on the shelves - I know pretty strange but I just found them to be a fun element in the room so I went with them and the tropical colors for the inspiration of my card.
I chose the current Mojo Monday sketch to use for my card.
For my card I chose one of the leaves in the (Paradise) stamp set from SU. Instead of stamping it in a dark color I chose some blues/greens by using a Kaleidacolor (Caribbean Sea) ink pad. My papers are from Cosmo Cricket (DeLovely) line. I also found a scrap of some black stripe paper that reminded me of the black stripes in the quilt on the bed. I embossed the Bermuda Bay cs using the Victoria embossing folder. My greeting is from the retired SU set (Autumn Leaf Prints) and was stamped on Crushed Curry cs with Basic Gray ink. I added a ric-rac border of Hot pink and some Hot pink brads as well to complete my card.
