FTTC91–Inspiration Challenge

 

SONY DSC

Hello everyone~

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC91)! This week Betty Wright is hosting. Betty is challenging us to find inspiration with Cafe Baudelaire prints. Visit the site and choose a picture that inspires you. The images are French shabby chic, but that style card or project is not required. We would love to see your take with your card making style.

 

My card for the challenge was inspired by this picture:

I used the rose image from A Year in Flowers 2 and it was colored with Copic markers (Hollyhock Collection & Evergreen Collection). For the sentiment, I stamped the word “Hello” from Cherry Blossoms set. The frame was created with Label 15 Nestablities … I became a huge fan of Aga Trawinska’s work when she showed us her gorgeous creations over the Spellbinders Blog (she just finished all of her posts as the International Guest Blogger). I LOVE how she sponged the frame between the dies…another fun way to use the Nestabilities dies! I also used the Cuttlebug border die for the decorative black borders.  To finish off, I attached the pearls and the seam binding ribbon bow.
