H2H Challenges: Photo Inspiration

Wow!  Does time go by fast!  It's time for another challenge over at Heart 2 Heart!  This week is an inspiration photo!

I knew from the beginning that I wanted to create a CAS (clean and simple) card, as I just love how they look.  So I checked out a few websites for some inspiration and decided to use the sketch from this past week's Clean & Simple Stamping sketch #187 (see below).

I have to tell you, I absolutely love the color palette this spring.  Lots of tropical colors, pinks, oranges, greens...all of which can be found in the photo for this week's challenge (also below). Of course, the colors drew my attention first, but then my eye was drawn to the flowers on the wall.  So here is what I came up with.

See the flower on the right?  I wasn't thinking and I used a glue pen to adhere it to the cardstock.  However, the liquid glue made the ink run.  Funny thing though, I liked how it looked.  One of those "happy accidents".

CTMH Supplies Used:
Non-CTMH Supplies Used:
ATG Adhesive (Scotch)

Here's the inspiration photo at Heart 2 Heart...

and the sketch that my card was based on...

To play along, all you have to do is 1) follow the rules (use the photo for inspiration and use mostly CTMH products) and 2) link your project back to Heart 2 Heart from your blog post or online gallery.  If you are linking from a blog, you must link directly to the actual post, not your entire blog.  You also need to mention H2H in your blog post.  Finally, we do ask that you consider turning off word verification, as it does make it easier for the design team to leave comments, as well as visitors to your blog. ;) 

In order to be considered for the Top 10 award, you must link your project for this or any of this month's H2H challenges by 10 p.m. on the last Saturday of the month.  

Don't have any CTMH products?  That's an easy fix!  Simply contact your local CTMH consultant (or go here to find one near you) or you can place an order by going to my website.

Now it's your turn.  I can't wait to see how you are inspired by this photo. :) 

Until next time...
