For Your Inspiration #44


It's time for For Your Inspiration Challenge #44!

When I first saw the inspiration photo, I was a little stuck. That happens sometimes. So I walked away and let it bubble away at the back of my brain for a while. The inspiration struck - white embossing on grey for the grey skies! I love the subtle effect it creates.
I used Jane's Doodles Pretty Peonies and Mama Elephant So Breezy stamps. The patterned paper is Studio Calico Snippets. Card base is PTI Soft Stone.

How does the inspiration photo inspire you? It's an amazing view! Stormy weather? Sunset? Grey, black, orange, and yellow? I'd love to see your interpretation!
The rest of the design team has been hard at work, too. Why don't you pay them a visit?

Thanks for coming by!

Michelle I just love everything about this card. I really thought the pp was a panel you stamped. Love the white embossing on grey. That's the whole reason I bought a pack of Soft Stone...but have I done it yet? Nope:)
