For Your Inspiration #12

It's time for another photo inspiration challenge from For Your Inspiration.  I hope you take time to play along.  You have until August 31st to enter a project based on this photo.


I just love the rich and vibrant colors in this picture.  Don't know that I'm ready for Fall yet though:)  I made a simple one layer card using the colors represented here.  I inked up the large vine image from Papertrey's With Sympathy set with my Kaleidacolor Autumn Leaves ink pad.  The little flowers are stamped in a blue-violet ink to pull in the color of the sky.



I'm also submitting this for the One Layer challenge on the Less is More blog.  I really enjoy their challenges but haven't got to participate yet.  This one was right up my alley.





All supplies from Papertrey Ink unless stated.

Stamps:  With Sympathy, Iconic Images
Paper:   Stampers select white
Ink:   Autumn Leaves (Kaliedacolor), violet (memories)
Other:  corner rounder

Your one-layer card is beautiful, Sara! I like how you added the purple flowers. I don't have the With Sympathy set, but that image always makes me want to add that set to my cart.
