Today is the kick off of the Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge which will be posted every first and third Thursday of the month. Just like SC, an inspiration post will be posted and you use that post or picture to create a card or project. Here is today's inspiration piece (bed linens and pillows only) from Land Of Nod.

This is the card I made using the inspiration.

When I saw this inspiration, I right away thought of the 09 in colors of Stampin Up. I had wanted to do more of a silhoette of the flowers to match the pink bedspread. After I stamped the flowers from SU- Heartfelt, I decided that it really needed more, so I did the outline in embossed gold. The sketch is from Jenn D's "Sketch For You to Try for this week." The dp is from SU's Candy Lane. The butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch. I am loving the EK Success punch I used on the border and on the image frame. Since my sewing machine broke, there is no sewing this time. I did a lot of paper piercing instead.
I hope you have time to play along with the Divine Diva's on this weeks inspiration challenge. If you do, please post a link here. If you are posting on SC please type in DDIC1 in the keywords so we can see your creations. For more inspiration, please click on over to the other divine diva's blogs for their awesome creations.
I can't wait to see some of the creations with this inspiration. Please note this is not a company sponsored challenge so any stamps can be used. The next inspiration challenge will be posted on Thursday, April 16.
Thanks in advance to all those who participate, who have visited my blog, or who leave comments. You are all appreciated!! Have a great day!
