Blogger's Challenge #68: Inspiration!



For this week's challenge, Lisa gave us an inspiration piece! I LOVE THESE CHALLENGES! I can usually find something that helps me duplicate the inspiration.



I used circular images from two stamp sets, Priceless and True Friends. I used my Stamp a Majig to allow me to place my images so precisely. I finished off the card with a couple of layers under the main background and used the Curly Label Punch and Cute and Curly Set to give it the pillowy look from the inspiration piece.

Thanks for looking and be sure to check out how the other Blogger's Challenge members were inspired by this picture!



Card Recipe:
Sets: True Friend, Priceless, Cute and Curly (from Curly Label Punch Bundle)
Cardstock/Ink colors: Basic Black, Real Red, Whisper White
Other: Curly Label Punch, Stamp a Majig

Wow! What an awesome background. I would not have thought to have used those 2 sets like that. Of course I'm (Stamp-a-ma-jig)challenged so that would have never worked for me. Your card is fabulous!
