Jennifer and I arranged a month ago that I would post OLW59...and I promptly forgot. So of course, it's late going up. Sorry, folks. I totally dropped the ball.
Before I go into it, let me say you all did an AWESOME job with OLW58. I'll finish leaving comments today (I'm getting better about that!), but seriously, you all ROCK!
Here is OLW59, and I will come up with a card later today to share. OLW59 is an inspiration challenge based on this photo I stole from Pinterest:
Now, I know some of you are intimidated by inspiration challenges. Let me remind you that the inspiration piece is just a starting point. You can take your own interpretation of it in any direction that you want. For instance, with this picture, you might use a jar and flowers image, just the colors, a grid of circles, flowers without a jar, a ribbon wrapped around your card, a wood-grain background, a collection of something other than flowers, etc. Really, there's so much you can do with this picture. Don't let my list limit you!
Edited to Add my Cards:
First up a tidy arrangement using Gracious Vases...my PTI order arrived today! I used crystal effects on the vase and three yellow blings on the flowers (they look too dark in the photo, thought).
Next, a whimsical thank you card based on the grid of the jars in the photo. The flowers were arraned to form a triangle, and the thanks sentiments are from Clear and Simple, Papertrey, and Hero Arts.
Some of you have already posted cards, and I'm off to look at them now!
1. A one-layer card is defined as a single layer of cardstock folded in half. No other layers allowed.
2. Make a card using the above photo as inspiration. Remember to keep embellishments to a minimum.
3. Upload your card somewhere online and link to it using the InLinkz button on the sidebar of Simplicity.
4. Most important of all: have fun!!!!
