for your inspiration 21

This is my second post of the day, so please scroll down to see my CASE study card.

Are you ready for a new photo instalment from For Your Inspiration? How about this for amazing architecture!

This challenge is sponsored by the Wax Fruit Company who are offering a prize of a $15 store credit! I chose to work with their "birdhouse row" digi as the shapes of the houses reminded me of the arches of the cathedral.

Supplies: Stamps - Wax Fruit Company birdhouse row, Waltzingmouse Stamps teeny trees; Inks - Versacolor pinecone; Card - Stampin' Up rose red; Twine - The Twinery cappuccino; Button - Papertrey Ink spring mix; Dies - Speelbinders labels 14; Promarkers

I tried to pick out some of the pink/peach hues for my colour palette.

I actually really liked this card but wondered if it was too plain, so I did another one using deeper colours, a bit more layering and some patterned paper.

Supplies: Stamps - Wax fruit Company birdhouse row, Waltzingmouse Stamps teeny trees; Inks - Versacolor pinecone; Card - Stampin' Up cherry cobbler, Papertrey Ink rustic white, enchanted evening; Paper - Echo Park winter park; Dies Papertrey Ink scallop die

Which one do you prefer?

Here's the design team list so you can stock up on New Year inspiration! I hope you find time to join us this week.

Debby - that's me!

Debby, I love BOTH these cards! I love the dots on the second one, cute! If I had to choose, I'd choose the first one. I like plain. ;-)

I love that you interpreted the photo as bird houses - I can totally see it, but would've never thought of it. I don't think that first one is too plain, it's perfect!

I think both are fantastic. Beautiful, as always!

Oh, dear. I love them both. Can I say that I like them both equally?

I love both cards, the stepped up card is really eye catching!

Love both of your cards Debby - using that birdhouse stamp is a great interpretation of the photo! Rx

They are both great cards. The first has a fabulous CAS look about it. I find it hard to do CAS though and so my favorite would be the second card.

Ooooh! Love these! That first one in particular is so sweet, and the colors are fabulous!
