UDI Inspiration Challenge 69

It's been awhile, since I've been able to participate in the UDI Inspiration challenges. A wide varitey of issues, but I finally was able to take part this week! Of course, I come back to a week that was hard for me. I had different ideas running through my head, but none actually worked out. Below is the inspiration picture.

Here is the card that I made for the challenge. It didn't turn out exactly like I had wanted, but I left it as is. I went with a couple different things from the picture - the swirl, the tree trunk lines, and the speckled look (to me at least).

The swirl didn't actually come out on my card. I have a baby shower to go to this coming weekend, so thought I would make a card for it. I also used this past weeks UDI sketch challenge on this card.

Be sure to check out the other challenge team members to see what they came up with. You can find their blog links at the UDI Blog. Also you can check out the cards on SCS using keyword DivaIC69.

It's a great card, Karen! That's the best thing about an Inspiration challenge...we are all inspired by different things! I love seeing where we all go with the same picture. I'm so glad you're able to get back to the challenge!
