Pinterest inspired!

Hi there!

There's a new card challenge in the land of blog ... and I think it's going to be so much fun, because we all love Pinterest don't we !?


                                    Pinterest Inspired Challenge



I fell in love right away when I saw the inspiration photo  at  Pinterest inspired challenge  !

The colors were the first thing that grabbed my attention... and yes the lovely florals!

This is what I made:

I saw stripes in one of the circle elements, and being in a stripey mood lately, I created a striped background from scraps of card stock . It's a really easy and fun way to add color !

The flower is lilly of the valley if you want to look it up in the Silhouette online store.

I added a sentiment from a Casual Friday stamp set called breathe.

My husband is always interested to see what I create... and because of that, I always educate him share with him design tip and tricks. In this instance, how the sentiment should match the feeling or vibe or colors used in the card. he looked at this card and said: I get this, look at those flowers with their heads hanging, you are telling them that it will be ok... so , there you have it! Mission accomplished!

Thanks for visiting me today!

Super card! Love the stripes. Your husband is a smart cookie. Not sure my husband would have made the connection between flowers with hanging heads and an encouraging sentiment. He's still fabulous, though, and I'll keep him. :)

Ag, dis so lekker as mens se wederhalf jou so ondersteun in jou stokperdjie en as hy so ewe geduldig luister na al jou verduidelikings, ne!!!! En, ja, die blommetjies gaan OK wees, ne en ook die ontvanger van jou pragtige kaartjie!!!! Mal oor die strepe en hoe jy die kleure gebruik het om by jou sentiment te pas. Wat 'n wonderlike idee om 'n heel ander stemming te skep as die vrolike blommetjies wat almal maak!!! Die blommetjies op die vellum lyk regtig mooi!!! Dis 'n pragtige kaartjie, vrou!!!
Ek moet gaan kyk na hierdie nuwe challenge wat almal nou so aan deelneem - ek is mal oor Pinterest en spandeer partykeer ure daar!!! Die idees wat mens daar kry is net ongelooflik!!
Groete

Such a pretty card, Hannelie! Those bright stripes are a perfect background for the silhouette flowers! And the vellum behind the silhouette - just great looks!

Shona Chambers said...

Your husband does very well. Mine will either go 'hmmmm' or 'thats interesting'. He's not really into it but that's okay. Totally loving your card, the stripes are a brilliant idea and love the flower. I think this is going to be such a popular challenge, can't wait to see what their next photo will be!

Barb Ghig said...

Your hubby sounds like a great guy! Very clever to pair your sentiment with the mood of your flowers and I love your striped background! You're a real wizard with your Silhouette, too ~ LOVE this card, Hannelie!!!

Hey...I have the Lilly of the Valley file but have never used it! I love the horizontal striped background - nice contrast to the vertical lines in the lily image!
