Inspiration Challenge

Today's Inspiration Challenge on SCS was great. There was a choice of three pictures to use and I chose to combing these two. This first picture is where I got my layout design inspiration.....



And then this picture inspired the colors of my card....




And now for my card....




This card is a big one -- it is 4 x 9 and I left lots of room to write a personal message inside as you can see from this picture.....



What a fun challenge! I am pretty happy with my card. I added a piece of Soft Sky around the back and inside for two reasons--one to cover the acetate on the back and the other to give me a light color to write my message on.

Stamps: none
Paper: Taken With Teal, Purely Pomegranate, So Saffron, Soft Sky and Basic Grey
Ink: none
Accessories: rub ons, 3/4 inch circle punch, acetate, bone folder


Thanks for stopping by today hope you have a wonderful Father's Day weekend. For those of you who are fortunate enough to still have your father with you cherish it -- I so miss my Dad!
