I whipped up this little card for the newest challenge over at Whimsical Wednesday. Our fearless DT leader Stephanie sent us this gorgeous picture of a scraproom and told us it was our color inspiration for this week. We all had to use to colors red and yellow, and we could chose another color/colors from the photo for our project. I chose purple, which I saw in a photo box on the desk.
My card is 3.25 inches square. Just a little bitty thing.
I cut the flower from the Cake Basics cartridge. I believe I cut the shadow at 2.75 inches and the flower at 2 and 1/2. I wanted a wider shadow than the image normally has. I cut a small circle separately and filled it in with yellow Stickles. I curled up the edges of the flower and added some little dots of Xmas Red Stickles for a little more interest.
I used a stamp set from SP & Company called Mini Card Creations 1. I stamped the little frame in a purple ink, but it wasn't exactly the color I wanted since stamping on yellow changed up the look a bit. Going over the frame with Lavendar Stickles really made it truly purple like I wanted.
I stamped Be Happy from the same stamp set in some red ink and called it done.
This was a nice simple little card to whip up :)
Now, let this photo be your inspiration as well! Head on over to Whimsical Wednesday to see what the other gals game up with and to link up your own creation for a chance to win an awesome prize.
