For Your Inspiration #45

When I saw the photo for the newest FYI challenge I knew I wanted to use my new Boutique Borders:  Father set from Papertrey.  I kept it really simple with some spiral clips and a great piece of patterned paper from Colorbok that I've had for far too long.

I stamped the scrolled frame in Fresh Snow Ink and the sentiment in Dark Chocolate.  Then I decided to highlight the open parts of the sentiment in white using my white distress marker.  I really looks much cooler in real life.

Here's the inspiration photo for this challenge:

I hope you'll play along with us at For Your Inspiration.  You have until Wednesday, May 15th to link up your card or project based on the photo.

Please take a look at what the rest of the incredible DT created for this challenge.  Links are on my sidebar.

I'm also entering this into the current Simon Says Stamp challenge:  Happy Mail.

 All supplies from Papertrey Ink unless stated.

Stamps:   Boutique Borders:  Father
Paper:   Kraft, Colorbok Earthtones pp
Ink:   Fresh Snow, Dark Chocolate
Other:  Boutique Borders:  Father die, spiral clips, Picket Fence distress marker (ranger)
