Happy Thursday!

It's time for another Inspired By Challenge....



Here is this weeks #IB253 inspiration and sketch....


My card was inspired but the rustic look, the frames and the sunflowers! 

I decided to pull out an older retired Anniversary Set from Papertrey Ink called Painted Petals...definitely a favorite of mine! The card was framed with the Curio Cover Die from The Greetery. The background was ink blended with a Honey Comb Stencil. Next I added the the "Congrats" from the Arched Sentiment also from The Greetery. At last I accessorized the card with some Sequins....voila!

Hello again!

I'm stopping by with a second post...I'm excited to be hosting this weeks Tic Tac Toe Challenge...



Here is the #TTTC223 board I've created for you guys to try....looking forward to seeing your ideas!

INSPIRED BY CHALLENGE - #IB252 NEUTRAL

Happy Thursday!

Another week has flown by and we are back with a new Inspired By Challenge....





My card was inspired by the neutral colors and the wall decoration. 

I was instantly drawn to the wall decoration and remembered the Winter Wanderer Collection from The Greetery. Betsy crafted this card and I knew I had to case it. I simply ink blended the background with Ranger Distress Oxide Antique Linen. Next, I splashed some Gold Zig Kuretake Gansai color on to the card stock and added the rest of the elements. At last I added some Gold Sequins and the sentiment.

Now it's your turn! Please stop by the INSPIRED BLOG for all the details! Wishing you a crafty day...if you like, feel free to come back this afternoon and check out my second post...I'm hosting this weeks TTTC :) !!! ~SL~
