SOS40: Open-Inspiration Challenge
use the picture as inspiration... colors, subjects, etc.
so yeah, you can use ALL the colors... or just some of them; you can go with butterflies and flowers... or not; you can interpret this one ANY way you'd like! awesome, no? here's my card, and YES, it really is *MY* card, i didn't accidentally get it mixed up with someone else's, lol:
(patterned paper: 7 gypsies, my mind's eye, basic grey, the paper co, prima, g45, k&co; diecut flower: k&co; velvet stickers: making memories; vinyl stickers: american craftys; dimensional tiny flower stickers: joannes; bling: prima; glitter glue: stickles; ribbon: may arts; ink: colorbox; adhesives: tombow monorunner, 3m foam tape, gluedots, sewing machine)
because YEAH, ironically, although i am inarguably the QUEEN of the girlie colors... and although we were given an inspiration palette with both PINK AND PURPLE in it... somehow, i managed not to use EITHER of them--go figure!!! :) :) :) it wasn't intentional, i assure you, it's just how this one happened to come out. i think i kinda love it, though!
some SERIOUS stash-usage here: even the die-cut and fussy-cut bits (as leslie would say, "parts is parts") were already in their current form, i just gathered them all from various scrap-based locations and assembled--woohoo. i think the youngest thing on this card is the luscious green background paper, i know i grabbed that last summer when my not-very-local-lss (sob!) was closing; the oldest are the velvet word stickers which i'm pretty sure i bought to make a valentine/birthday card for miss riley elizabeth when she was a toddler... so at the very least they are six/seven years old! (for the record, i still like them... and as you can see, i still use them from time to time!)
so what elderly but continuously-beloved goodies are in your stash? and when was the last time you made something with them? why not take a nice long look at the inspiration picture, grab up some fun ingredients, and link up the results over at SOS this week? g'wannnnn... you know you wanna!!! ♥
