Terrific Tuesday Inspiration Challenge

Happy Tuesday All!

Hope everyone had an enjoyable holiday weekend. The weather was fabulous here. We visited with friends and family and did some yard work. All in all, it was a nice weekend.

Now that it's Tuesday, I have a card to share with you that I made for Cindy's Terrific Tuesday Challenge. This month she chose to do an inspiration challenge. To see the inspiration piece, please click on the link to her website.

I decided to make a pocket card for this project and went with the colors from the inspiration piece. I started with Black as the base and then layered on Brocade Blue, Rose Red, So Saffron, and Vanilla. I was also inspired to use flower stamps. I used Essence of Love to create a garden. I colored directly on the stamp with my markers, then stamped the Vanilla. I added some butterflies and ribbon to finish the card.

In keeping with the flower theme, inside the pocket is a seed packet of Zinnias, a gift to create a garden. I CASEd this idea from my SBS sister Lynn, of L W Designs. Lynn's pocket card is absolutely gorgeous! I thought it was a great idea and so I had to try it. I added a tab punch and flower punch outs with a rhinestone brad to finish off the seed packet.

Thanks for looking, hope you'll check out Cindy's challenge and be inspired to create! Happy Stamping!! :)

Oh and by the way...
My fellow design team member Melissa is offering up some fabulous blog candy and when I say fabulous, I mean fabulous! Check it out! :)
