TSG63: Inspiration Challenge

Wednesday, July 14, 2010

Good Morning!

Sorry for the lack of posts these last couple of days. I got back from my Maryland vacation on Monday evening and decided to spend the rest of the day with the family. And I'm not that organized, so I didn't have any cards prepared to post while I was gone. It was a great vacation! Got to spend some quality time with my girlfriends as well as take in the sights of Baltimore and Washington, DC. Can't WAIT to go back and take the family this time! :)

This week's There She Goes challenge (TSG63) is brought it us by junior trendsetter, Heather Pulvirenti and her challenge is one she is FABULOUS at - an inspiration challenge! You can check out the image on the There She Goes blog, but before you head over there, check out my card:

I thought the patterns on the wrapping paper were really bold, so I picked an equally bold patterned paper for my card. It's the Paper Doll collection by Crate Paper - so cute! I bought mine while I was visiting a scrapbook store in Virginia. And I paired it with the recently released A Drink A Day set.
Since coming home from my trip, I've been house and dog sitting for my in-laws so I don't have all the supplies I usually have around me. Which is why I think my card is lacking something,...I just can't figure out what. It's really hard creating when you're out of your comfort zone, isn't it? Makes me wonder if going on a stamping retreat is a good idea....I'd have to bring EVERYTHING! lol I used Taylor's TESC120 sketch for my layout and colored up the cocktails with my reinkers and aquapainter brush. Added some rhinestones and some machine stitching and the whole card was done in a couple of hours!
Now it's your turn! Just create a card or project and upload your creation to the Mr. Linky at the bottom of the TSG blog post! It's that easy!
This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (July 19th). The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG web store!

I'm so glad to hear you had a great vacation!

Love the card. I wish I could get the shading down. It looks so simple, but my inks are not cooperating.

Fantastic Job!!
