Inspired by.....#4

Hi guys

This card is another to add to my 'Inspired by...' series.

I thought this one would be easy but I've been faffing around for ages trying to put this one together!  I started with a square base card, then abandoned it.  Next I tried a portrait card, and yes, abandoned that too!  So I settled on this landscape version.  I'm not loving this card, really not sure why.  I like all the elements but not sure I like them together.  Anyhow, I thought I would share it with you and add it to my stash.

and here is where my inspiration came from...

My bed linen!

Materials used:
  • Stamps: Clearly Besotted Stamps - Flower Arrangement; Uniko Studio - Flower Power #2
  • Ink: Versa Color - Cement, Bamboo and Split Pea; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Patterned Paper: Pink Petticoat - Hydrangeas
  • Cardstock: Papermania - Kraftstax; white card from stash
  • Embossing Folder: Stampin' Up - Vine Street

Challenge entries:
Totally Gorjuss - Challenge 221 - Sunny Colours
2 Sisters Challenge - Challenge #173 - Embossing
Crafty Catz - Challenge #216 - Anything Goes
The Card Concept - Challenge #2 - Use Texture (I've used the style 'clean and layered')

Thanks for visiting, hopefully I can add more to my 'Inspired by...' collection this year, my efforts last year certainly need to be improved upon!

Take care


  1. It's beautiful Anita and I love how you've tied all the elements together. It's sometimes like that though when you spend ages on a card - it doesn't feel right until someone else casts an eye over it. Fabulous bedding too. xx

  2. Beautiful card Anita, I really like it. Love the inspiration bedding too! xx

  3. Isn't it great when you can get inspiration from something that's right in your grasp. I love your interpretation. Excellent.

  5. Love your card, Anita. Very pretty colors. Love your inspiration too. :)
