H2H - Photo Inspiration week

Happy Sunday (evening)! If you are like me, you are still up - clinging to the last threads of the weekend. Sunday nights are the hardest for me to turn in. I just don't want to let go of the weekend -- usually I hold out as long as I can. :)

So here I am blogging, after a wonderfully satisfyingly creative weekend. It was great! I spent a lot of quality time in my "Fortress of Solitude". I made three cards for challenges, a layout for a challenge (all to be posted sometime this week), and the final layout for my niece's album. It was great fun and I finally kicked myself out of the room this evening to catch up on laundry and give my neck/shoulders a break. (I could easily "undo" my Saturday morning chiropractor visit by spending hours at my desk!)

Enough about that --- this week at H2H a photo was provided for inspiration for any type of project. It could lead you to a color scheme, sketch idea, theme, etc. For me it was a little of all three. The colors and flowers made me think of the happy, light floral prints and pinks/greens in the Sophia kit. The three side-by-side photos spoke to me, as well, because I love for my projects to have an orderly symmetry when I create. (Not that they always do).

And here is my project....inspired by the happy, light photos above:

For the center of the cards, I stamped the small button image from the "Sophia" WOTG kit stamp set, then covered it in Glitter Gel. The flourishes are stamped with the same stamp set and a pink jewel is located in the center of the tiny flowers within the flourish. I also used the birdcage and bird from this same stamp set on the interior of the card. The stamped phrase "So Very Grateful" came from the "Miracle" WOTG kit stamp set. I used Hollyhock and Sweet Leaf ink pads and inked the edges of the card, both inside and out, with a texture tool and Baby Pink ink.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend. TFL!
