Hi again -- sorry it's been so quiet around here.  I've been making lots of cards, but I'm not finding time to write up any blog posts.

Anyway, it's time for the next For Your Inspiration challenge.  Steph has chosen a gorgeous photo for us to work with this week.  I hope you join us for this challenge.  You have until May 16th to post your project on the FYI blog.  This challenge is sponsored by Fresh Brewed Designs and they are offering a prize of three free digital stamps to one randomly chosen participant.

Now, onto the photo inspiration:



I told you it was beautiful.  It reminds me of Hawaii and the west coast of Ireland.  Here's my card:


I chose to work with the A+ Bug digi from Fresh Brewed Designs.  School is almost out and I'll certainly need some thank you cards for our teachers.

I stamped the apple background, from PTI's School Time, in Ripe Avocado ink and then again in white ink (slightly off center) for a shadow effect.  I wanted to use subtle colors on the ladybug so that the colors from the photo were more dominant.

I hope you take a moment to see what the rest of the DT has created with other FBD digi's.  Their links are on my sidebar.


Blessings,



 
All supplies from Papertrey Ink unless stated.

Stamps:  A+ Bug digi (Fresh Brewed Designs), School Time
