Hi friends! There's a new Photo Inspiration challenge over on the Just Us Girls blog. Vicki chose the photo this time and I just love it!
Here's a closer look at the photo. So much inspiration!
This is what I came up with. I of course could not ignore the black and white stripes. I like how the stripes were offset, so I set out to recreate that. I found this piece of paper with black and white diagonal stripes. I cut a two inch strip then cut it in half and laid it down on another two inch strip of thin white cardstock. I offset the stripes before adhering it to the cardstock. Then I saw a card on the Case Study challenge blog that used PTI's button dies. I had been wanting to use them, so I pulled them out and cut several from pink, green, blue, and yellow cardstock. (I took these colors from the flowers and two vases in the photo.) I was worried that the colors might look too baby-ish, but I think the black made it more sophisticated. I layered some buttons and put the bigger ones up on dimensionals. I added some Wink of Stella shimmer on some of the buttons and then filled in the bare spots with enamel dots. I kept the sentiment simple.
You can see the card I took my inspiration from here on the Case Study Challenge blog.
Stop by the JUGs DT blogs to see what amazing cards they created!
