Good Morning! We were supposed to get about 2" of snow Friday night, but we actually ended up with about 5". It was really pretty and light, though. We were supposed to get freezing rain, so I would MUCH rather have the snow. But it did make me chose supplies for a card that have nothing to do with snow :)

This is for the SCS Inspiration Challenge. For this challenge you are given a link to something that has nothing to do with scrapbooking or stamping, it just has cool designs. You are to use that as your inspiration for your project. For instance, this was my inspiration. And this is my card!

I loved the flowers and I thought of this stamp when I started making it. I used Bazzill cardstock, Maya Road Cherry Blossoms and Birds Chipboard set, which I painted and then added some chestnut road chalk ink to the branch and Inkssentials white pen and pearl gems to the flowers. The stamps are from Hero Arts stamped in Rose Coral chalk ink and Versafine Vintage Sepia. Then I tied some May Arts brown wrinkled ribbon on the sides and pop-dotted the sentiment up. I also put some stardust glitter pen on the swirls of the frame stamp, but you can't see them so well in the picture. They add some bling to the card though :)

I'm telling you these challenges are fun and you get to stock up on some cards so you'll have them when you need them :)

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

That turned out great and really close to the inspiration. I like the pearls in the center of your flowers.
