It's Banana Split Sunday :)

Good Morning! It's Banana Split Sunday and today's challenge is an inspiration challenge. This is a print by William Templeton called Banana Bandit. I love the colors in this as you will see from my card :) I really wanted to get a touch of the green in my card, but I didn't so I just may have to do another one :)

Go to the 2RedBananas blog to get all the details and to see the dt's take on this inspiration. They are fabulous!! Then you play too and be sure to use Mr. Linky to show us your creation!

This is the card that was inspired by this print! I love the warm colors so that's what I went with. The browns, oranges and yellows just warmed me and it's funny because I usually reach for blues and greens. Guess that's what challenges are for aren't they :)

Paper: Bazzill, MME - Bloom - Polka Dot Punch, Webster's Pages -Reflections of Nature - Amber Waves

I love these warm colors...they just warm your spirit and make you feel happy! I love the softly inked scalloped edges and how the stripes and dew drops lead your eyes to that gorgeous bloom.
