Pinterest Inspired Challenge #1

Yay!!!! FINALLY, I can tell you about our new challenge called Pinterest Inspired Challenge (PIC)! We have been ready for months this is why I’m so excited. 

I'm also very excited because we (the DT members) are all blog friends for a few months and have so much fun together "behind the scene"! This makes the challenge very special to me. Thanks to Emily for having the idea of this challenge and to Simonne for the fantastic blog design. Let's start!  

Our Design Team members bring a Pinterest image each month for your inspiration. Your projects can be created based on colors, patterns, shapes, design, etc. There is no limit on how you get inspired. Feel free! It’s up to you! Just have fun!  

This is our beautiful August inspiration: 

Here is what I came up with: 

I got inspired by the colors. For this card, I used a sentiment from Neat & Tangled called "Everyday Circles". The inks are Archival Inks from Ranger (Chrome Yellow, Aquamarine, Viridian) and dye inks Simon Says Stamp (Fog). If you want to learn how to make these bubbles, HERE is a video tutorial I made a few weeks ago with a similar design.

Our sponsor this month is The Alley Way Stamps and you can win the CALYPSO stamp set: 

You can enter your projects until August 25th (11:55pm EST). Check out the PIC blog for more information and inspiration from the Design Team.

Have a wonderful day…
