Inspired by Home

Tonight I'm sharing a couple of challenge cards I created this week. First of all, Flourishes stamps is having a challenge on their blog to go along with a new release. The challenge is to find something in your home to inspire you and make a project inspired by it. (I don't have any Flourishes stamps yet but I read some of the design team blogs and these are on my wish list.)

Here is my inspiration piece. I got this plate for Christmas and my sis-in-law said she COULD NOT leave it in the store because it reminded her of my house and goes perfectly with my decor. And I love butterflies.

I colored the butterfly with my Prismacolor pencils and added the color around it with chalks. I cut the circles with Nestabilities.

Stamps: Inkadinkado, Studio G
Tools: Nestabilities/ Big Shot, Martha Stewart zig zag border punch
Cardstock: Bazzill

The next card is for Charisma Cardz Thursday Challenge. The challenge was to use pink in your project. So here is my pink card. It's based on this week's sketch at Paper Craft Planet.

Stamp: Inkadinkado

Cardstock: Bazzill

Patterned Paper: Basic Grey sugared

Accents: ribbon (Offray): felt hearts, cut from Sizzix Big Shot- die: Originals Hearts, primitive #2, flowers, prima; eyelets; pearl (Michael's)
