Hi All! Today is going to be a short post due to illness here. Since it is the third Thursday of the month...Lori from the Divine Diva has sent me this photo for the Inspiration Challenge this week:
I was inspired my the red flowers, the diamond shapes in the background and the colors in this photo. I chose to use the SU Holiday Traditions paper to duplicate the diamond pattern and the green of the pillow. The flower is from SU True Friend and was inspired by the other flowered pillow. I also threw in the brown since the bed frame is brown. The Martha Stewart Shell border punch was inspired by the weave on the bed frame.
This is a more simplistic layout for me.....and mostly all SU products except for my border punch.

Card Recipe:
stamps: True Friend (Stampin Up)
Paper: Holiday Traditions SU, brown and white CS
Accessories: Ms Shell border punch, SU Chocolate Chip Ribbon

For more inspiration for this challenge, please visit my dt sisters:


Hope you are inspired to come and play along. Just leave a comment here with a link to your card. We can't wait to see what you create! The keyword for uploading on SCS will be DDIC24. Have fun!!
