Source of Inspiration -- Maile Belles

Did you see this card by Maile Belles?  WOW!  I love it and wanted to CASE it.  The Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge this week, WMC44, is to create a project to show a source of your inspiration.  I know for many of us Maile's creations are a constant source of inspiration.

Here's my take on her card:




This also fits with this week's Crazy 4 Challenges -- use dies, C4C75.  I used a circle Nestie to cut out the window in the Spring Rain Bitty Dots pp.






All supplies from Papertrey Ink unless noted

Stamps:  Love Birds, Big Birthday Wishes, Four of a Kind (2010 CHA set)
Paper:  Stampers Select white, Bitty Dots pp
Ink:  black, pure poppy
Accessories:  pop dots, pure poppy twine & button, circle nestability (spellbinders), corner rounder

Sara, you did a great job! I love everything Maile makes. Her cards are so simple but somehow it would take me hours to come up with something like hers. :) Hope you're enjoying the weekend!
