Diva Inspiration Challenge #58

Can you believe it is Thursday already?? I'm glad though because that means we are one day closer to the weekend! Today is another UDI inspiration challenge for you. I missed playing along last week due to my son being in the hospital - not a planned visit. He is fine and doing good now, but that meant I wasn't able to participate last week.

So - on to today's challenge! The picture below was our inspiration. Isn't it a beautiful pot of flowers? I love the green!! You would think that I would have chose that to jump start my card, but nooooo.....

Here is what I came up with. Now I will tell ya - I am not pleased with this card. Not sure what it is, but it just doesn't do it for me. I think I've lost my mojo (the past couple cards I've made haven't turned out the way I wanted them to).

Things to Note:
-- Circle Clear Rhinestone brads were used in some of the flower centers
-- I stamped the flowers once and stamped again without reinking
-- The 2 individual flowers are cut out and popped on dimensionals

Supplies:
Stamps: Eastern Blooms
CS: Bermuda Bay, WW, Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay DSP
Ink: Rich Razzleberry
Other: Markers - Close to Cocoa, Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo, Circle Clear Rhinestone Brads, Stampin' Dimensionals, Stamping Sponge, 1/16" Circle Punch

Thanks for stopping by! I have some other cards to post later - they are the club cards from this week. Also - be sure to stop by the UDI Blog to see what the other challenge team members came up with!!

Stampin' Hugs,
Karen

I totally understand what you mean about "something not quite right". I go through that quite often, but is often reassured it's fine - and so should you. Popping things up on dimensionals is a favorite of mine.

I'm real glad your little boy is doing much better!
