FFC#3 Photo Inspiration

Click Here for my 200 Follower Giveaway~

Hello my bloggy friends and welcome to another Funday Friday Challenge. I just want to say thank you to all of you who have been playing with us for the past couple of weeks! It has been so much fun seeing all the cards and beautiful, inspirational projects being linked up. Speaking of inspiration, this week the design team created projects that were inspired by this gorgeous photo inspiration.

This week's Challenge:
Create a card, layout or project inspired by the photo above.
Starts: Friday, June 7th 12:00AM
Ends: Friday, June 14th 6:00PM
(central time)
Here is what I created this week for the challenge

Standard A2 size card. Card base is CS from Bazzill. Front layer was created using the Damask Printing Plates by Lifestyle Crafts using their yellow ink paint and their Letterpress kit. The sentiment was also inked up using the yellow ink paint and  stamped with the letterpress kit on a white label cut from the nesting frames 9 die set using LP Kit. The sentiment "Happy Birthday"comes in the Splendor printing plates set.

To finish the card off, I added this cute paper bow that I cut out from the LifeStyle Craft's Knotty Gift Set and embossed with my swiss dots embossing folder. I then added some "buttercup" liquid pearls in a cluster of 3 to add some contrast. I hope you enjoyed my card for today. Now let's have a look at what our talented design team has created for you.
