FYI 43, Retro Sketches 57 & Simon Says BD

Happy Thursday once again!  It's time for the next For Your Inspiration challenge.  As always, you have two weeks to play along and create a project based on our inspiration photo.  Just link your card or other project up at the FYI blog.

Here is the photo for the current challenge.  Isn't is beautiful?  Anyone know where this is?  I'd love to know.

You can see that I took the colors and textures from the photo to create my card.  I used two different embossing folders from the Decorative Tile Set.  The one I cut up into panels was inked up using Royal Velvet, Sweet Blush and Lemon Tart inks to mimic the colors of the sky.

I used the current sketch from the retro sketches challenge for my layout.

I'm also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Birthday challenge.


All supplies from Papertrey Ink unless stated.

Stamps:  Wonderful Words: Birthday
Paper:   Kraft, white
Ink:  Royal Velvet, Sweet Blush, Lemon Tart
Other:  Wonderful Words: Birthday die, Decorative Tile Set embossing folders (cuttlebug)
