Utah Divas Inspiration Challenge #97

Finally - I was able to get a challenge done and on time! Now when you see the picture that I used, you'll probably wonder how I ended up with what I did. It was simple though - since I haven't had a chance to stamp in awhile....I went really easy with this one. That is the best thing about challenges - you get to interpret how you want. :)

So, below is my card. I chose to go with 1 main color from the picture - hence the GREEN. Yes - my favorite color of all time, so like I said it was easy peasy!! We actually made this card at my Stamp Club this past Monday as well.

Things to Note:
-- I used the new Punch from the Punch Pack
-- The flower from the Itty Bitty Bits set fits perfectly over the flowers in this set

Below is the inspiration picture. Doesn't it just make you want to eat some fresh fruit!! I want a bowl of some fruit now so bad I can taste it!! Yum!!

So, what do you think? I know I haven't been a good blogger, but I'm really trying to do better! I have tons of cards to post - just finding the time has been the problem.

Stamp Sets: Thoughts & Prayers, Itty Bitty Bits (Summer Mini), Teeny Tiny Wishes
CS: Whisper White, Old Olive, Tall Tales DSP
Ink: Old Olive, So Saffron
Other: Scallop Punch from the Punch Pack (Summer Mini), Stamping Sponge, So Saffron Grosgrain Ribbon (Retired - from SAB)
Be sure to check out the other design team members and what they created - just head on over to the UDI Blog.

Thank you for stopping by! See you again soon!!
