Amazing Inspiration

I hope you've all enjoyed seeing the Design Team's take on the inspiration challenge as much as I have. I loved seeing what the pillows inspired each of them to create. I went with a turquoise and white theme for my card. I just loved the bright color of that pillow with the white bits of flower and trim. I used flowers from Thankful Blossoms and embossed them on turquoise cardstock with turquoise embossing powder. I added little white flower punches to the smaller flowers and a "flower confetti" to the center of the big flower along with turquoise rhinestone brads. I embossed the open flower and stem from Serenity in white on the card base, then I mounted the flowers from Thankful Blossoms on top with dimensionals. As finishing touches, I added the white organdy ribbon and paper piercings along the bottom of the card.

Now it's your turn! If you've made a card or project using the pillow photo as inspiration, link it to this post by Midnight (Mountain time) tonight, April 22nd for a chance to win. The winner will receive $15 in Verve Bucks to spend at the Verve store. We can't wait to see what you've created!
