For Your Inspiration #13

Welcome back to another photo inspiration challenge from

We have some new things going on at FYI.  First of all, we now have some great sponsors for our first challenge of each month.  This week our sponsor is Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  One participant from this challenge will randomly be selected to win $10 in store credit from Sweet 'n Sassy stamps!

The second bit of news is that we have some changes on the DT.  We sadly say goodbye to Valerie and Wanda.  We will miss their gorgeous work being part of the team.  However, this means that we are welcoming two new DT members!  Join me in welcoming Michelle and Peggy to FYI.  Be sure to stop by their blogs and say hello.

Okay, onto the challenge:


Look at all those beautiful colors.  I couldn't resist using those on my cards.  I chose the hummingbird image and a verse from the Hummingbird set.  I changed the colors of the bird image using Microsoft Word to reflect the many colors in the photo.



Here's a look at each card separately.  I tried a little something different with the yellow one because I didn't like the way the bird image looked in all yellow.  Instead I added a yellow oval frame around the lightened image.


The purple one seemed a little dark with the black border strip so I stamped a scallop in purple and added black hand drawn lines.



The other three are the same layout.




I hope you'll join us for this challenge.  You have until Wednesday, September 14th to play along.

Be sure to visit the rest of the DT to see what they made.  Their links are on my sidebar.
