for your inspiration 27

This is my second post today, please scroll down to see my CASE study card.

I'm going to jump right in with this stunning, dramatic photo for this weeks For Your Inspiration challenge.



This month For Your Inspiration is being sponsored by The Cutting Cafe and I used their "You're in my thoughts greetings inside and out" set on my card today.

I was drawn to that little black and yellow buoy floating in the corner and I translated that into a chevron background with a pop of yellow and then the upright structure of the lighthouse became my flowers!



Supplies: Stamps - Paper Smooches geo-graphic; Digi - The Cutting Cafe you're in my thoughts greetings inside and out; Inks - Versacolor sky gray, canary; Paper - Papertrey Ink smokey shadow, Stampin' Up basic black; Die - Memory Box chloe stem; Stampin' Up rhinestones

Although it doesn't show up in this photo particularly well, one flower stem is cut in dark grey and one in black.



And here's a look at the inside. So the sentiment reads "Please forgive me .... Your friendship means a lot to me!"


I really must do more with the insides of my cards. I always add a mat of white card to give a nice finish and depending on the colour of the card base, a white mat is easy to write on. However, I've seen some lovely insides of cards where the inside has been given as much care and attention as the front. Something to work on :)

Please call be these lovely ladies for more inspiration:

Debby, there is so much that I like in this card! I love the grey chevrons with the pop of yellow, I love the two greys of your flowers, but I think most of all, I love that bling! Beautiful! Forgiveness is guaranteed! :-)

Beautiful! I love that colour combo and it's sooooo trendy with the chevrons!
I neglect the inside of my cards...although I recently dressed one up and it looks so much better! I think I just get so excited at finishing one card front that my mind is already on to the next project LOL!
Hope you're enjoying the hols!
Hugs,
Aimes
