Just Us Girls #340 - Photo Inspiration Challenge

Hello!  This week at Just Us Girls, Bobby has the Photo Inspiration challenge.  She chose this fresh and summery photo.
 
Here's a closeup so you can see more details.
 
When I saw those cookies with the swirly frosting on them, I immediately thought of the Circle Scribbles stamp set from PTI.  So I stamped them on watercolor paper and embossed them with white embossing powder.  I then watercolored them with distress inks in colors I took from the inspiration photo.  The sentiment and butterflies were embossed with Liquid Platinum embossing powder, even thought they look gold.  I added sequins for additional interest.  I usually use white card stock as my base, but today I used a coral card stock instead.  The main panel is on craft foam.  I should also mention that this card is a CASE of Danielle Flanders' card.  I looked up this stamp set on PTI and saw her card.  It was just what I was looking for as inspiration on how to use this set (for the first time!).
 
You can see more from the design team and our guest on the JUGs blog.
 
Thanks for stopping by!
