I go in spurts when doing challenges it seems. I love challenges because they can jumpstart your creativity. However, by the time I get a challenge accomplished - a new challenge has been posted (usually 2 or 3 really).
You may remember me posting a few months back for the UDI Inspiration Challenge. Well, with my laptop issues and such, I haven't participated in awhile. Happy to say that I am back and posting!
Below is the picture for our inspiration. Isn't it great - bold colors and the big flowers. Yep - it was great when my idea jumped right in my head for this one!
Here is my card. I went with both the colors and flowers. I used the SU Sizzlits Flower Blossom for the main flowers. The centers of each petal are actually 'cut' when running them through the Big Shot. So, I popped them out of each flower and then repositioned them into a different color flower to achieve the look from our inspiration picture. I used a flower from Eastern Blooms as a filler. I used a silver brad for the center of each Flower Blossom. The greeting is from the SAB set Whimsical Words. (Want to get this set for FREE? Be sure to contact me.)
Because the base of my card was black, I decorated the inside too. Just a little simple design, but definitely adds the right touch I think.
So, there you have it. Be sure to check out what the rest of the UDI Inspiration team did! You can get the links to their blogs by going to the UDI Blog.
