FTTC60 -- Denise's Inspiration Challenge



It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC60) ! It is the last Tuesday of the month so we have us a challenge host. This month's challenge host is Denise Marzec(Peanutbee) ! Denise is challenging us to an Inspiration Challenge! Denise has chosen three gorgeous pictures to get inspired by for our card making. Pick one or do all three during the week. We would love to see what you create!

I picked this photo below for my inspiration!

I used Strawberries set and colored with Copic markers. I also took the colors of red & blue, gingham patterns and the shape of the plate as the inspirations to create my card.
The background dp is from Basic Gray Nook & Pantry and I used the gingham ribbon and the rhinestone brads to embellish the card.




To honor Denise, I also decorated the inside of the card...you probably know that her cards are super pretty inside also :)


Now, check out what the rest of FOF have created for the challenge!!

Beautiful card, inside and out! What a sweet hubby you have to plant strawberries. When our backyard is done I may have to plant some strawberries too. Where did you purchase the red hanging planter?
