Over at House of Cards, they have come to the end of their Design Team term and are celebrating with a huge blog hop and challenge. My friend Monika told me all about it and when I saw the fantastic inspiration photo, I just had to play along!!
Two things that caught my eye in this photo were the black frame and the white vases with pink flowers. It took me a while to work out how to put these two together, hopefully you like what I came up with:
The shape of the white vases looked incredible to me and I knew I didn't have anything that would cut that shape. So, I cut them out myself with some scissors (so don't look too closely....). After working out where they would sit, I stamped the flowers and then glued the vases over top. I die-cut the frame twice from black CS, glued together and popped up with lots of foam tape. The sentiment was stamped in black and added a few enamel dots for interest. Its simple, with lots of white and pops of pink, just like I wanted.
The flower stamps are from Waffle Flower 'Loved' and the frame die is from Paper Smooches 'Frame 2'. The sentiment is from Neat and Tangled 'Kindness Matters' and the enamel dots from Papervine.
I'm going to link this to the Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge, where their theme is 'Friends or Superhero'.
It has been freezing cold here today. Was supposed to go gardening but it kept raining and was way to cold for my sore body. Fingers crossed its a bit more above freezing tomorrow as I need to get it done. The joys of gardening in Winter.......
