Hearts & Bling

Saturday's Inspiration Challenge came from "Echo Design". They had a number of really cool clothing items. I picked the scarf that you see to the right of my card. I loved the colours - I'm an earthy sort of girl. It took a bit of time to decide what stamp set I would use but I settled on Garden from the Heart. I think I like this set so much because the sun hat reminds me of my Grandma and how she loved to be in her gardens. I finally got the scalloped hearts this week - They are just so cool!!!!!!

My second card is for Monday's Clean and Simple Challenge - the challenge was to use designer series paper on a CAS card. I decided to use the Kaleidsocope paper because I think it's so funky!! The sparkle die was used to punch out
three pieces with the Big Shot. To get the "simple" bling in the center of each sparkle I removed it from the "brad" so it wasn't so bulky on the card.
The sketch for this card comes from Our Creative Corner. Pop over there to see the other fabulous creations with this sketch

Well, that's all for today. Hope life is treating you well in your part of the world.

Great job. I'm especially impressed by your inspiration card. It is lovely and such a great reflection of the scarf. I love the way you made the ribbon around the hat dotted like your ribbon trim. Great job on the sketch challenge. So happy you could join in the fun at the OCC this week.
