New Challenge at Inspirational

Hi friends!

When this challenge goes live I'm enjoying London with my wonderful friend Sandie from London Days! We two have met several times IRL already and I'm always so happy to meet my favorite crafty girl! If you don't know Sandie (probably impossible!), do pop by her blog and have a look at her CAS cards. You'll be inspired! I came to London already on Wednesday and also spent one day with Inkspirational "boss" Marina from My Perfect Life. Her card making style is so admirable also... She does magic with her Silhouette and is a master in combining different styles of stamps and styles! How lucky I am to have such blogging buddies! Do go and visit both of their blogs! 

Anyway, I'm here today with my DT card for the new Inkspirational challenge, chosen by our wonderful Carol:

My original idea was to attach the darker, die cut panel to the other half of the card base and let the Copic colored Lawn Fawn flowers "hang" on top of a cut out window. Well... It seemed like a good idea until I realized my Copic coloring had naturally bled to the other side of the card I used and the card looked hideous! I had to ditch my plan and in lay the cut out window... So actually I don't even have a window. Not a very good DT card I'm afraid! Do forgive me! I do love how the coloring turned out and the natural colors of this card look quite pleasing for the eye too... So I hope this will distract you from the fact that I don't have a real window. ;) I finished the card with a white heat embossed sentiment (magazine freebie) and clear sequins. Hope you like! Do head on over to Inspirational blog to have a look of the other DT cards. Our guest designer this time is the very talented Pam Sparks. Play along and one day you could be guest designer for us too! Happy crafting!


  1. And I am so excited to have you here! Love to see you and visit my fav city with you. Another day of fun ahead of us! Unfortunately you are a night person, crafting into the early hours whilst I sleep and I am up with the birds! Still shopping later needs to be done...sometimeslife gets in the way of crafting!!! I love how you have shown another way to approach thus challenge and will inspire many and your design and colouring works a dream!

  2. I am certainly envious of your trip, and hope you have a wonderful time!
    Your flowers here look fantastic! Beautiful coloring. I like the layered panels with the faux stitching die. It looks "window-like". =) The card turned out super cute!
