I LOVE a good Challenge...or two!!!


I made this card for the challenge posted over at Mothers and Daughters creations.They used a mug as the inspiration piece and I chose to use the colors for inspiration and also the bird. I knew right away what colors to pick and how I was going to do this challenge. It was really fun to choose WHAT I wanted to use as my inspiration and I love the way this card came out. I don't know if you can see it, but I embossed some flowery stemmy things on the black card stock to match the gold paper I used in other areas of the card.
I also used a sketch challenge from Splitcoaststampers.com. It was challenge number 68. I love the challenges as they give you an idea and then you get to be creative and do things they way you are inspired by the guidelines!
So that's it... it was a "challenging"day for me and I hope you will get inspired to do some of the challenges found out there in cyberspace and see what you can create!
