Inspiration Challenge!


Well, here is the Great Swaps Girls first Inspiration Challenge. I hope you like it and decide to play along! Please use the picture (from Pottery Barn Kids) to inspire you to create something- it can inspire the colors, patterns, texture, theme or whatever you want! Then be sure to post a link here so we can all view your creations! Please use the keyword GSGC03 in your keywords in the gallery. We can't wait to see what you come up with!!



Here is the sample I came up with. I was inspired by the colors and patterns, and even the designs on the wall that reminded me of my favorite stamp in the set Snow Burst!

Stamps: Snow Burst, It's Your Birthday

Cardstock: Ballet Blue, Purely Pomegranate, Whisper White, Wild Wasabi, Certainly Celery & Rose Red Prints

Accessories: Circle Punches (1/2", 3/4", 1", 1 1/4", 1 1/8"); Wild Wasabi striped ribbon, white gel pen

This is so funny, because my kids have that same bedding from Pottery Barn Kids, just different colors. Although their bedroom doesn't look as good as the picture!!! Great challenge, Kristin and I love your card!!

Hey! Did you guys remove the info about joining your group?! I looked for it today and shed a tear when I couldn't find it. Anyway, thanks again for another great challenge.
