Pals Paper Arts #3-Inspiration Challenge

Play at Pals Paper Arts with me! As part of the Design Team at Pals Paper Arts, I get to play each week! It really does help me grow as a papercrafter to follow a sketch, color scheme or just come up with a design like this week's: by using a photo. We were on our own to pick the colors or designs from the photo. If you are inspired, please play along, we'd love to have you!


I used the rug in the photo to make my base, but I actually didn't think of it until I had made my flowers and chosen my colors. I made it easy on myself by using my Big Shot and a few different dies. I shined it up a bit by using some rhinestone brads. Lastly, I added some punched out mini butterflies. No ink or stamps were used on this card! 

Ingredients:
Cardstock: Night of Navy, Bashful Blue, Pumpkin Pie, Wild Wasabi (retired), Very Vanilla
Accessories: Big Shot, Decorative Strip Billboard (letters), Birds and Blooms Scallop Circles, Flower Pieces and Large Flower, Rhinestone Brads, Mini Butterfly Punch (by Marvy)

If you are in need of any Stampin' Up! supplies to fuel your challenges, please shop with me!
