Flowery Happy Birthday...Inspirational Challenge #84~Photo Inspiration, Seize the Birthday~Anything Goes

Hello...

It seems like only yesterday that we were  over at Inkspirational, with out *Purple & Wedding* challenge for our sweet Pia and her handsome groom, Thomas.  Thank you so much for such marvelous, special entries!  Two weeks have flown by, and it's time to welcome you to Inkspirational Challenge #84:

Such a pretty image: a summery outfit (love the striped tank top, frilly skirt and yellow shoes), flowers and books, a perfect scene to lose oneself in a story. And with that as introduction, I wonder: where will the 'story' of this photo inspiration take YOU?

My DT and I are thrilled that incredibly sweet and talented, Kylie  is our Guest Designer. Her card will delight, as will those of my wonderful teammates:

 Pia, our newlywed

Please check out their cards and leave them some love; they'll be thrilled.

My card follows a simple plot - flower, vines and leaves, a butterfly or three..and best of all, it has a happy ending!


Hope I've offered a bit of inspiration to encourage you select a detail or two from the photo to create a card/project to share in the Ink gallery. You may be the one we choose as a future Guest Designer!

Sharing my card in the gallery at: 


Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!
Hugs,

  3. Lovely card, Carol! I agree that inspiration photo is beautiful. I like how you took the flowery parts and made it your own. Of course, those butterflies are a wonderful addition. I also like how you stamped on the sentiment, too. Thanks for sharing and for letting me know the colors on the previous card that I had asked you about. Have a lovely weekend!

  4. Beautiful technique used here, with the multicoloured stamping and the die-cutting . Looks like a real garden of wildflowers.
