Are you up for a Challenge?

There's a new Challenge Blog on the block and it's all about Inspiration! You'll want to become a Gal Pal and visit the Paper Lovin' Gals every Thursday for a new Challenge... Everyone is welcome, crafters of all Mediums, pros and newbies and there will be some Monthly prizes I hear!

It's Challenge #1 and check out this great Inspiration photo :

I love the colors in this photo they are so bright and cheery but still have that country feel. For my card I wanted to keep the layout of the photo as well as try to replicate those colors. So I started with a Tangerine Tango base and I sponged the same color along the edges.

Then I added a layer of Sahara Sand that I stamped with the Wood Grain BKG in the same color as well as sponged the edges. Using some Pool Party DSP I wanted to keep that color in line with the Pitcher. I stamped the Flower from Fast & Fabulous in Melon Mambo, Pretty In Pink, Daffodil Delight and Basic Black. I added some more Pool Party along the edges and behind the flowers.

For the sentiment I stamped Birthday Wishes from Occasional Quotes in Black and then I added a few Silver Brads to my card to help balance it out. Be sure to head over to the Paper Lovin' Gals and see what the rest of the Design Team created this week and join in the Fun!
