for your inspiration 28

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

I'm popping in here this morning with a wonderful photo for our next For Your Inspiration challenge.

I must admit that this one had me stumped for a loooooong time! I love the orange trend which seems to be emerging at the moment, but I'm afraid I'm not a big fan of purple. However, once I'd decided to incorporate the purple as a dark card base on which to sit a white mat with splash of orange I quite liked the end result.

Supplies: Stamps - Hero Arts antique engravings, Papertrey Ink pretty peonies; Ink - Versafine onyx black; Card - Stampin' Up elegant eggplant; Dies - Spellbinders circles; Markers

I combined this challenge with A Blog Named Hero's challenge to create a card with a window.

And I'm also going to pop it into the gallery for day 2 of the online card class "A Cut Above" which was to make a window card :)

Please call be these lovely ladies for more inspiration and I hope you get the chance to play along with us this week :)

Debby - that's me!

What a BEAUTIFUL take on that inspiration. And a second take on the butterfly stamp this week...its inspiring me to take out my stamps and look for a butterfly. I KNOW there's one in there somewhere... Happy spring!
