For Your Inspiration #44


I don't know where time goes when it flies by, but I wish it would slow down just a bit.  How can it already be time for the next For Your Inspiration Challenge?  I swear these challenges always sneak up on me.



I love the photo inspiration this week!


I used my new favorite thing again on this card -- glitter tape.  I just love working with these tapes.  So easy and fun.  For this card, I stuck strips of gold and orange on a piece of card stock and die cut the word birthday.  Love the result.

To mimic the clouds I cut the front flap with a border die.  I chose to add a little more visual interest to the base with the sheet music impression plate then finished it off with some twine.

I hope you play along with us at FYI.  You have until Wednesday, May 1 to link up your creation based on the photo above.

I'm also entering this into CASology #40: WORD challenge.

Love it, Sara! Love the mixture of colours, love the twine (how did you get your bow so neat?), and I love the music background. :-)

The glitter tape is incredible. I don't have any, but you are making me think I "need" it with this gorgeous card.
