UDI Diva Inspiration Challenge #60

Well, it's Thursday and that means it's time for the UDI Inspiration Challenge. Isn't this a great picture! I love the different stripes going on here - the curtains, placemat, coffee mug, and flower pot - are each unique, but flow so well together.

So, with the different stripes - that is what I ended up using for my inspiration.

I just got this set on Tuesday with my latest club order. It is the Level 2 Asian Artistry set. I normally don't use the hostess sets, but I was really drawn to this set and can see me using it quite a bit.

Things to Note:
-- Sponged the WW card stock edges with Soft Suede
-- Main image is pop dotted

This card also follows along with the Diva Coffee Break Designs Challenge #144 - it was a color challenge this week. I liked the colors and decided to pair them up with our challenge.

This is just the inside of the card. I normally don't 'do' the inside of the card - not sure why I don't though. However, tonight I was inspired to 'do' the inside. I stamped off once on the image, so that it wasn't as stark and if needed could be written over. I also sponged the WW edges with the Soft Suede ink.

Stamps: Asian Artistry
CS: Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzleberyy, Whisper White, Razzleberry Lemonade DSP
Ink: Soft Suede
Other: Markers - Soft Suede, Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzleberry; Soft Suede Polka Dotted Ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals, Stamping Sponge
