Inspirational photo

Hello everybody,

Today I have a project I made for a challenge, Melissa Philips has on her blog. She has been putting up some inspirational photos from A Creative Mint blog for a while. The photos are stunning! I wanted to do them all but pressed for time. But this photo is just so attractive, I had to use it to make a project.
Here is the photo for you.

I told you! The photo is stunning and attractive. Looove the orange and white with a hint of purple. There are other photos from A Creative Mint, that Melissa has on her blog as well. I will definitely have to give them all a go one by one.Anyway, here is my take on the challenge.

I made a altered frame and a birthday card.Here is the close up of the frame.

I have used a combination of PTI and SU stamps on the project. Punched them out with circle punch and matted them on to scalloped circle punch and added some rhinestones and buttons and arranged them on the frame. Some closeups of the elements on the frame.

For the card, I have used the damask stamp from SU Friends 24-7 for the background. I am loving doing up my own pattern paper. Particularly the damask orange background on white cardstock is just beautiful. I wouldn’t mind such a wall paper as a feature wall on my living room. Will make a great feature wall. Maybe a different color? Hehe!

Some closeups of the Prima Pearl flourishes on the card.Subtle yet adds dimension to the card.

I have started using my collection of scrapbook embellieshments to make cards. Feeling nice about it, because I have not used a lot of embellies I have for almost 11 months. Eversince I started to make cards using stamps, I have not touched my scrapbook papers and embellishments. I even thought of giving them away! But now, I have started using them on cards. So I will have a few of them and give most of them away! That way I will have some storage space available for new stuff.

Thanks Melissa for the photo and an awesome challenge. Have a great day everybody!
