2 More Challenges

I'm joining in 2 more challenges today; The Card Concept #186- Photo Inspiration, and Inspired By Challenge #219 - Inspired by Whip Cream.  I really enjoy visual inspiration - it just motivates me!

Let's start with The Card Concept - this photo - perfect!  I even saw a card layout, so, I remade the photo.


I used the Simon Says Delicate Frond, and a couple of unbranded dies to replicate the fern, and rather then doing the napkin holder with the twine, I made a fun sailor's knot.

I used a circle of gold shiny paper for the charger, and then, to balance out the card front, I did a hand drawn framing. 

I am rather happy with this card. 😀

My card WON! 


I went on to join in the Inspired By Challenge.  I used the sketch, and was inspired by the hot chocolate.


I used some stashed water colored papers I had for the panels of the sketch, and dug out my There She Goes, Let's Get Together stamp set. [2009 people!  I'm tellin ya - I don't get ride of stamps LOL]  In this photo, you can see the "whip cream", which I made with Liquid Applique. [This stuff is amazing! Watching it poof up with the heat gun is so fun]

I colored the cup with Copics.  The Hello is from Dare 2B Artzy, Hello Die. [This is a fabulous set! It has a backing, along with a tag - priced so reasonably!]

Overall, I'm okay with this card.  Not one of my favorites.

Thanks Challenges!  I had fun~
