TSG74 Inspire Me with Flowers

This week at There She Goes we have a fabulous inspiration challenge that is brought to our featured Trendsetter Iwona! There are so many great elements to this image that are perfect to get that mojo flowing. You can take your inspiration from the colors, shapes, layout, textures, etc. Have fun and we can’t wait to see what you come up with!

I had so much fun making this card. I know I often go for bright and fun DP's but this was a little out of my comfort zone in terms of colors but let's just say that the Inspiration photo definitely inspired me.  I love how both the teal and the yellow seem to pop off the page.  I just got a package of goodies in the mail from There She Goes and Polka Dot Blooms was one of the sets I'd been wanting for awhile. Both the inspiration photo and the DP screamed for me to use this stamp set.  I've cut out a second flower and popped it up using Pop Dots.  I also loved the texture in the photo which is why I chose the DP from the Cosmo Cricket DeLovely pack.  I then dry embossed my DP layers with some Cuttlebug Embossing Folders (Victoria and Seeing Spots) and then sponged around the edge of both of them. 

To be eligible for the giveaway, you are to create a card that is inspired by the provided picture, then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the InLinkz that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (Oct. 4). The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!

By participating in this challenge, you may also find yourself in the Trendsetting Spotlight that shines on the TSG Blog every Thursday. We will be on the look out to find challenge cards that stand out and show Trendsetting qualities. TSG stamps are not required to participate in the challenges but are appreciated :)

You do not need to have a blog to be able to participate in the TSG Challenges! You can simply add the URL link from your project after it has been uploaded to your online craft gallery. If you upload your card to an online craft gallery, please use the keyword TSG74 so we can check out your beautiful work!
