Hi All! Since it is the first Thursday of the month...Lori from the Divine Diva has sent me this photo for the Inspiration Challenge this week:

Here is my take on the challenge. I was inspired by the middle plate in the middle of the flower. I used the Friends 24-7 stamp set to create my card. This card is also for the Queen for the Day Challenge. This week's Queen is Pat Smethers. You have to go look at her gallery, it is AMAZING. I chose to case this card:;ppuser=76845 I changed the colors,, embossing folder, added ribbon and used the Lattice Die to frame my image. I also incorporated the Stampin Sister's in Christ Challenge to use Paper tole and dimension to your creation.

Today is one year since the Divine Diva Inspiration challenge began and I became a part of this team. Anyone who participates in the challenge this week and leaves a direct link to Lori's blog here, will have a chance to win a prize that is being offered my Lori herself.

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 DDIC25. Have fun!!

Thanks for stopping by and for your sweet comments!! I hope you are able to stop by later this a.m. for the Our Daily Bread Designs New Release and some April Fools Fun!! The team has some fun planned!! Also....tomorrow is the Blog Hop for Wags n Whiskers!!!
