Be Inspired Challenge

Over on Beate's blog, Fresh and Fun, there's a new weekly challenge. The challenge is to use an everyday object to inspire creative ideas in our stamping. Today's object is a little funky colored change purse. Check out her blog to see the photo of the purse and her awesome "inspired" card!

For my take on this challenge, I used the set Friendship Blooms from the Sale-a-bration mini. I chose to use this set because of the flower designs on the purse and because I really like these simple flowers. I wasn't all that crazy about this set when I first got it, but it's grown on me since then! It's just fun!

The cardstock choices here are Basic Black, Purely Pomegranate, Tempting Turquoise, and Whisper White. The ink colors are Pomegranate, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Wild Wasabi, and Tempting Turquoise. I added a piece of Pumpkin ribbon and some flower brads from the new silver hodgepodge tin. There's some paper piercing accents around the edge of the Pomegranate piece. The "friend" is from the set For a Friend.

Hope you have the chance to be inspired today too. Happy Stamping!! :)

Hello! I just discovered your blog - from Beate. I read her blog all the time but had been on vacation so was reading some older posts when suddenly I saw a headline that said "winner Denise Lynn" and since that is my name I thought I won something. *LOL* thankfully I read through things carefully before I e-mailed Beate to claim a prize or something. Anyway - just wanted to say hi to someone who shares the same name as me.
