H2H Photo Inspiration Challenge



This week's challenge on the Heart2Heart Challenge Blog is a photo inspiration challenge. We were to create something using the photo above as inspiration. My first inspiration was the colors. I loved all the organic brown colors in contrast with that beautiful blue. When I started creating my card I realized the photo made me think of being at a beach house so I started feeling beachy. I struggled to not use any flowers on this card. Wanted it to be masculine. I used the new Perfect Day stamp set along with my trusty old You And Me and possibly my favorite Universal Backgrounds. The colors are Cocoa, Lagoon, Desert Sand and Bamboo with a little bit of Pacifica. Finally used some baker's twine (I've been struggling with it for some reason), new Durables Studs (self-adhesive), a wooden button, and bitty brads.

A very fresh and unique interpretation of the photo - I like that! There is a lot to admire on your card, just like in the photo.
Thanks for playing - love the sanding place and stamping the message.
