We have another amazing inspirational photo for you this month that we just know will bring out the very best in your creativity!  Look closely and there are so many directions to go in!  you can choose to focus on the colors, the motifs or the overall design!  We look forward to seeing your projects!

I have included an inlinkz list below for you to add your link to your blog hop project.  This new type of link list will allow you to select a thumbnail to go along with your link, making it easy to go back and find a project later that might have perked your interest.  

You have until 11:00pm EST tonight (July 25th) to add your link to this list.  THREE random participants will be selected to win a FREE Papertrey Ink stamp set of their choice.  They will be announced and highlighted here, on my blog, tomorrow.  We look forward to seeing all of your creations!

P.S. If you complete this project and still need another challenge, be sure not to mention the belated Stamp-a-faire #10 challenge I added earlier this morning HERE.


Laura Isham wowed me with the embossing she created with the Parisian Doily die to frame up her sentiment.  The large ribbon makes such an unforgettable statement as well!

Elena created an impressive ruffled focal point underneath the frame opening on the cover of her gorgeous card, which mimics some of the pillows in the inspiration photo.

Laurie W. kept things simple with her design, but the pop of color she added with Mehndi Medallion on the butterfly die-cut is just unbelievable.  Will definitely have to try this!

Congratulations to all the winners!  Please be sure to email customer service with your shipping information and your free stamp set selection!  And thank you to everyone else who played along!  All of the submissions were absolutely amazing and I am just thrilled to see so many participants.  Have a wonderful rest of the week!

    Looove the colors in this photo! Had a busy day at work, but I just HAD to join in, so I went to my desk before even cooking diner, ha ha, and let hubby do the work! 😉 Due to the time difference I first had to make the card, so I could have the photo taken with a bit of daylight left, and i made it! Wihoe! Now, diner is finished and time to hop around! Thanks for organizing this wonderful Hop!
    Hugs, Wendy
