For Your Inspiration #17


Well, here we are for another fantastic For Your Inspiration challenge. The inspiration photo this week really appealed to me... I know, they always do, but this one appealed more than usual, LOL! Take a look at the inspiration photo:
It isn't the house so much (although that is nice, too), it is the bright yellow light in the middle of all that dark. It probably helps that yellow is my favourite colour.

Now if that beautiful picture isn't enough to inspire you to join in the fun, we have a PRIZE up for grabs from our sponsor. Yippee! Our sponsor for this challenge is Paper Pretties, and our winner gets to choose five digi images as their prize. Oh, I should let you know, the winner of the prize is a random pick, so you ALL have equal chances of winning, so long as you enter the challenge.
I have to say that I have loved working with the Crocus image for this challenge, it is so pretty.

My card is this one:
For this card I used Night of Navy card base, Daffodil Delight matte, and watercolour paper to print the digi Crocus. I used Derwent Inktense pencils to colour the image (oh, how I love my pencils). I used Daffodil Delight Taffeta ribbon.

The rest of the Design Team has also come up with some fantastic cards, so please do take some time to go and browse their creations too. In fact, while you are there, if you haven't seen their work yet, take a look around, there are some BEAUTIFUL cards to look at in their blogs.

I love crocus so I'm in love with your card already Michelle, but to see them against a black base makes them look wonderful :) Great use of the inspiration photo.

I love the navy base - it really sits well with the yellow. Your colouring of the crocuses is fabulous too.

Beautiful card Michelle! Way to showcase those flowers and your wonderful coloring. I think the Navy base was a great choice.
