Happy Labour Day! Hope that means you all got a little R&R time before heading back to work and school tomorrow! And hope even more you were able to get a little time today to make a card or two! I was able to put one together. This one isn't related to any challenges. I tried to work with a few challenges over the weekend, but they left me cringing, and I left them in the recycling bin! So today I just played. I got my inspiration for the card from Chapters/Indigo. Whenever I'm in there, I always get inspired - usually from the designs on their boxed cards, journal covers, home decor, flipping through books and magazines, etc. It is a goldmine for inspiration! So I snap a photo of anything that inspires me. (hmmmm, wait a minute, is that even legal??!!!). One of the cards I posted earlier this week was also inspired by something I spotted at Chapters. Funny enough, I don't usually go to Pinterest for inspiration. I tend to get WAY too distracted by EVERYTHING on there and end up spending WAY too much time on it! So Chapters is my go-to!
And here's what it inspired:
This is another mish mash of products. The flowers are Paper Smooches, TAWS and one of my old SU! stamps. Leaves are PS and TAWS. Butterfly is PS, the "Thank You" is Studio Calico and the "oh so much" is TAWS. The flower centres are embossed and the petals of the black flowers have glossy accents on them, just to bring out the colour a bit better. For the border, I randomly cut a scallop pattern at the top and then drew a white border. Finished it off with twine.
And that's it! Thank you SO much for visiting - I love it when you do!
