Audrie has done it again at the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast. This week's challenge is to use The Cake Blog as inspiration.
My inspiration came from this lovely hanging cake. You can find the description on this post if you scroll down a bit.
My card, inspired by the pink, gold, and white color scheme as well as the pretty rows of roses around the base, takes advantage of the bold gold Delicata ink that is so very, very awesome!
Y'all have probably noticed that I do very few challenges. It's frankly overwhelming to keep track of them...there are so many!!! But as a stamper who constantly searches out new sources of inspiration and loves looking at pretty images and translating them onto cards, Audrie's inspiration challenge is a great place to jump-start my creative flow.
Today's card uses older stamps and supplies (YAY!!) but this batch of new goodness recently arrived in my craft room. You've already seen me use the Circle Scribble Flowers set, but rest assured I've been having fun with all this new, fresh-smelling photopolymer. *happy sigh*
Now two of the nicest women in stamping are working together to bring us amazing things! You can read Gina's blog post here. Some of Claire's existing stamps will be available still, and she'll be adding new stuff to Gina's store as well! I'm so glad Claire is "back in the business" and her design talent won't go to waste. Can't wait to see what she comes up with for her new endeavor!
Whew. My exclamation point key is on fire today.
Anyway, have a lovely day. Our weather here in Ohio is finally improving, and it certainly lifts my mood to see the sun shining! I hope it's shining on you as well.
