Blog Hop Inspiration

photograph from Classy Clutter <—-one of my favorite blogs, so many clever projects!

One of the things I love about the photo above is that it can be interpreted in so many ways. Note the quatrefoil pattern on the rug, the subtle triangles on the walls, the ikat on the curtains. I'm in love with the Soft Stone, Berry Sorbet/Melon Berry, Aqua Mist with a pop of Blueberry Sky color combination. Take all of these things or pick one attribute to focus on and create a beautiful card for a friend. Enjoy the creative process and have fun!

EDITED TO ADD RANDOMLY SELECTED WINNERS

Random-numbers

Super stick chick

Super Stick Chick created this beauty based on the inspiration photo. I love the depth of color she was able to achieve with the coloring of her floral elements. And a lovely composition to boot!

Catherine

Katherine made a project with a quatrefoil background, similar to the one in the inspiration photo. The way she added definition to the sentiments with a bit of watercoloring was really clever. The floral mat layer she stamped is beautiful too!

Barb Kirkwood

Barb Kirkwood used the color scheme from the inspiration photo as her main focus and I love how it turned it. The stenciled background subtly echoes the diamond pattern on the walls in the living room showcased. Just fabulous!

Congratulations to all of the winners! Please send a note to customer service and provide them with your full name and the email address you would like your gift certificate sent to. Thanks to everyone for playing along!
