Hi everyone! I'm back from my wonderful weekend away with hubby, and I contracted a nasty cold in the process. I was so disappointed to be sniffling, sneezing, and feeling bad while we were in San Francisco. Today has been the worst day yet, so I'm hoping tomorrow will be better as I am back to work. Please forgive me for any typos that might be contained in this post as I'm surely not functioning at 100%. With it being Tuesday, it's time for a new challenge from Dawny at Papertake Weekly, and this week she did something different and fun! Today it's an inspirational challenge and we're being sponsored by the fabuous Katharina at Whiff of Joy! Take a look at this photo and let it inspire you in some way with your project. Whether it be colors, shapes, whatever. Just let your creative self be free and create!


For my card, I chose to use #277 Bon Voyage Tilda from the Bon Voyage Collection available at Magnolia-licious! Every stamp in this collections is so adorable! She's colored with Copic markers and then popped up from the card for dimension. The card shape itself was cut with my Cricut and Wild Card cartridge along with the Hi which was cut with the Mickey Font cartridge.


I think you can tell I took my inspiration from the colors in the picture using lots of pinks and purples.  The heart Tilda is sitting in is cut with Nestabilities. The cardstock is Bazzill and the paper is digital from Bearly Mine Designs.  Of course I had to use the May Arts silk ribbon to make the bow and the flower is from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Please be sure and hop over to Papertake weekly to see the rest of the fabulous creations from the design team, and we'd love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us! You might get lucky and win a fabulous prize! Thanks for stopping by to see me today and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!
