Happy Saturday! Time for another My Time to Create challenge and this week Lauren has a super fun Inspiration photo for you to use. Check it out:I just love all those fun colors and patterns! Take a look at my creation:
I had just received an order of new Cosmo Cricket goodies and the colors in that patterned paper reminded me of the inspiration photo (even though mine is a little more red than pink, but oh well!), so I started with that piece of Cosmo Cricket Early Bird DP. Next I knew I wanted to use my Background Basics: Retro stamp set from PTI on some Ripe Avocado (PTI) CS to replicate that funky green & white pattern. To add some vertical striped element to the card, I used my new Scor-Pal (from Clear and Simple Stamps) to create some embossed vertical stripes on a piece of Baja Breeze CS. I added a layered and crumpled paper flower (inspired by Dawn McVey), using my Slice to cut out the flower shapes in various sizes. You can't really see it in the photo, but each of the flowers has a tone-on-tone background stamped onto the CS from Polka Dot Basics, Background Basics: Retro, and Background Basics: Text. Finally, I stamped the "Friend" sentiment from the Friends til the End stamp set. (all stamps on this card are from Papertrey Ink).
Want to play along? Use the photo as inspiration for your project, then head on over to Lauren's blog and post a link to your project using Mr. Linky! Be sure to check out what the other My Time to Create DT girls came up with:
