The-Challenge 

Blog hop inspiration

artwork from the Sarah Langtry from Just the Bees Knees 

I love the way Sarah layered the gray text over the watercolored images here, and I thought how lovely the same design principles would look applied to a card! Replace the popsicles with butterflies, florals, hearts, stars or anything else you dream up. Pick one of the color palettes to base your entire card on, or try using all of them! Look for big sentiments that featured a mix of serif and script. Really experiment and have fun stepping out of your comfort zone!

EDITED TO ADD RANDOMLY SELECTED WINNERS:

Random-numbers

APearcy

A.Pearcy created a simple card that is high on style. The yellow and blue combination is fresh and fun. The clever arrangement of birds perfectly balances the sentiment.

Wanda Guess

Wanda Guess used this year's anniversary set Painted Petals to create her stunning card. The splatters added around the focal point bouquet are a great way to add balance and style.

Karen B

Karen B. made this watercolored beauty. Loving how she stamped the images in gray and kept the colors to pastels, which really carries through the theme from the original inspiration picture.

Congratulations to all the winners! Please email customer service and provide them with your full name and the email address you would like your gift certificate to. Thanks to everyone for playing along and creating so many beautiful projects!
