It felt AMAZING to get back in my studio and play with paper and ink this weekend. Thank goodness there were some awesome challenges that I could attempt in an effort to get back into the swing of things and challenge my creativity!
I fell in love with the Fusion Truck Bouquet challenge as soon as I saw it... those flowers?! hello!!!
I was inspired by both the photo and the sketch - here is my design:
Did I say how much I fell in love with those flowers in that inspiration photo?! lol
I knew that I wanted flowers to take center stage on my card, so I designed my card around that concept. I decided to go with bold black stripes for the background design and the bold black and white contrast of the embossed sentiment strip to finish it off. And of course I had to add a touch of pizzazz with the glittery gold washi tape and the gold sequins - perfect finishing touch to a celebratory card. The papers were from Illustrated Faith 'She Blooms' collection and the stamp is from My Favorite Things 'Brushstroke Birthday' set.
So glad that I participated in this challenge - it really was a great catalyst to get my creative juices flowing again!!! Thanks Fusion team for the inspiration!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
