For Your Inspiration #26 - Get Well

Hello!

It's time for another For Your Inspiration challenge!  The inspiration photo this week is full of rich colours and so much inspiration. You could take the colour theme, the asian influence, the bridge, the trees...and so much more.
I liked that cream bridge hiding in all those red leaves. The colours are so rich.
I used PTI vintage cream card, and Stampin'Up! Ruby Red (retired). The flower is Jane's Doodles Pretty Peonies stamped onto patterned paper and vellum, fussy cut, layered and glued together. The sentiment is Hero Arts Say It All. I stamped on the vellum with Stayz On ink, the other stamping is Memento Tuxedo Black.  I did use the PTI canvas/linen impression plate on the red panel, but it doesn't show so well in this photo. Try this other photo (taken at night, so not so great).
I do hope you join us at FYI for this challenge. I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Why don't you pop over to visit the other DT members, they have some awesome cards for this challenge.

Love this card Michelle! I love how the vellum really tones down the pattern paper but makes it even more eye-catching.

What a stunner! I love that bold and oh so beautiful red. What a delight. Your flower is just the perfect knock out embellishment. Fab corner rounding too.
