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!

I never did get a chance to comment on everybody's cards on Thursday, but I did take a look, and they were all awesome. I especially liked yours and the way you brought more blue into the mix. Lovely!
