CSAYL Challenge 30 -- Inspiration Photo


Sponsor -- Bearly Mine Designs


Our challenge this week, CSAYL30, is an inspiration photo.





Good Morning!  It's Friday and time for another Christimas Stampin' All Year Long Challenge (CSAYL30).  This week we have a photo inspiration challenge to inspire your creations.

For my card, I took my inspiration from the fun cupcakes and candy canes.  I combined red and green accents with digi papers from our sponsor's (Bearly Mine Designs) Chirstmas Wishes set.  Besides using the Christmas Wishes papers for my background layer and fishtail, I also used some of the patterned papers to paper-piece the cute Bugaboo image, Christmas Cupcake - candycanes.

After paper piecing the image, I layered the cupcake image on top of the dotted Christmas Wishes paper before printing.  I finished my design with a sentiment  from the SU-MDS set, Homestyle Goodies.  The tiny embellishments that I added to the fishtails were made by adding rhinestones to the centers of jewelry spaces.  

I will be entering my card in the following challenges:
Crafty Boots Challenge -- Christmas in August
Aud Sentiment Challenge #87 -- Anything but a Birthday Card

 Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a great weekend!

  5. Yeay!! I made it here on the first try this week! Such a cute card. At first I thought you must not have used the paper pack we received and then I realized most of your card used the tans and the red and green are the accent colors! Awesome job! I just got sucked in by the blues (maybe 'cause blue is my favorite color) and see any way to incorporate the colors of the inspiration photo. A really cute sentiment, too.
