Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge #14
Welcome to another challenge week! For this week's inspiration I chose this cool Japanese fabric. It's by Kobayashi and it's called Chrysanthemums. Sorry that I don't have a link for it - I saw it on Etsy but it's no longer available anywhere. I fell in love with it anyway, so that's what we'll be using this week!
I kept my card pretty simple - I am the victim of not enough time once again this week. Saturday I'm headed to my first Stampin' Up! regional so I've spent a lot of time working on my swap cards. I am hoping that next week I might be able to play a challenge just for fun - can you imagine? It's been a very long time since I did that. Anyway...
On to my card. I made the background first, inspired by the patterns and colors in the fabric. I used dusty durango, crushed curry, old olive, and not quite navy, with stamps from Circle Circus, Enjoy Every Moment, and Think Happy Thoughts. My cardstock is naturals ivory, which I have recently discovered and really love. How did I live without this stuff for so long? The flower is from Petal Pizazz, and I used the oval scallop frame die to make a big statement. Then I added the sentiment from The More the Merrier, with the modern label punch and Movers & Shapers die. I didn't have a lot of room for embellishment, but I did add a Playground button tied with hemp twine.
Be sure to check out the cards made by all the Divine Divas for this challenge!
Hope you are inspired to come and play along. Just leave a comment here with a link to your card. We can't wait to see what you create! The keyword for uploading on SCS will be DDIC14. Have fun and look for the next challenge on November 5!
