apart from buying everything in it of course hahahaahaha
it is an excellent source of ideas and inspiration.
this month the creative crew were asked to case a card from the catalogue and it had to be a tall card
i ummed and ahhed about a few and played with a couple but they were a bit poop
(so i am not showing you them here!!)
and finally was happy with this card inspired by page 78 and the nature's nest set.
the original used oranges and green and razzleberry i think
i swapped those colours for black, white and melon mambo
i changed the scallop trim punch for the lace ribbon punch
and the dragon fly for a butterfly.
the sentiment also got changed
i also wanted to change the medallion stamp from being subtle to being in your face!!
so i used the melon mambo embossing powder to really pop it out!
to finish it off i made a matching envelope using the very cool long envelopes from stampin up
i would love to see what card sketches have inspired you
feel free to leave your inspirations in the comments section and i will pop on over and say hi!
