Keesh's Inkspirations Inspiration Challenge # 7


Have you seen the DT girls cards for Keesh's challenge this week - wow - amazing!!! It did however make it very hard to clear my head of their stunning creations and come up with my own take! I found my first, and OK 2nd and 3rd, layouts were poor re-creations of what I had already seen. I HAD to come up with something new!!!

I ended up with this at 11.20 last night - the final bit of glue had been applied and I left it sitting on my desk to dry while I dragged myself off to bed!! It doesn't have as much colour as I would have liked, but something had to give. The only non SU items I used were the butterfly punch - one I've had for years, and the big red flower. I've used DPs from the Bella Rose set (the background), the Urban Oasis set (the leaves) and the Holiday Treasures set (the houndstooth check). Thank goodness for the current DP special which enabled me to get all these papers! I've used a Build-a-Brad for the flower centre - I LOVE these!!!!

Anyway - I was happy with the whole effect when I woke up to it this morning with fresh eyes - hope you like it too....

Hi Debbie, this is a great take on the challenge...not a bit of blue or pink in sight and yet its clear where the inspiration came from.

Your layout is very elegant and I'll bet it looks even more beautiful IRL.
