Inspired card

This week's challenge at There's Magic in the Air is an inspiration challenge. Make a card inspired by the image you see over to the right.
I used the Paper Cupcakes image called Tulips in Bottles -- pretty appropriate, huh?  I also got to use one of my favorite "supplies," a paint chip.  I thought this one in various shades of blue was perfect. It came with holes punched near the bottom, so I used that area for embellishments -- weaving a ribbon through it and adding extra ribbon on the side. (This particular kind of paint chip is from Lowe's, but I don't know if that's the style still available at the store or not.)
The image is colored in pencils and OMS, and I sponged some blue ink on the edges of the oval, which is popped up on the scalloped oval.
Winner of this week's challenge gets 2 free digi images of her choice, so be inspired and make a card.

  1. I especially love all the cards this week they are all so beautiful! I love how clean and simple this is as well. I also love love love the paint chip and will have to use that. I have seen it before and never think to use them when creating, but I love it and how you framed out the image and your ribbons were the just the right finishing touch!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment!
