Yes, Virginia....I'm Inspired!


My blogging friend Virginia Lu has a challenge on her blog, based on the cool photos of her son and his friends with their colorful cello cases. (David has the blue cello case, second from the right.) The challenge is to create a card using the photos as inspiration.

Here's my take on the photo. I used Papertrey Ink's ricrac border die and die cut several colors of cardstock. At first I was going to go with a blue/green theme, but decided at the last moment to add the buttons for a punch of color. The sentiment is from Paper Smooches.


Entering this challenge made me realize how lucky we are to have color in our world and our everyday lives, and maybe we take colors for granted, sometimes.

If you're inspired by the photos, say "yes" to Virginia and join her challenge! You have until June 13th to enter and the prize up for grabs is a copy of Card Creations Vol. 10 and some extra goodies, too.

I hope you have a colorful week! Thanks so much for stopping by.
