Inspired Birthday...

Hello friends~

Another weekend! YEAH -- This week went pretty fast, but I'm glad it's here. My birthday was Wednesday, I had root canal Thursday, so I'm just plum worn OUT!

Well -- it's Saturday, so we all know that it's 'My Time to Create' day!! Now -- c'mon, you know you want to play along...carve out a little time today to play.

We've got an inspiration challenge this week, and I had a BLAST with it. Here's the inspiration photo:

Here's my card:

This set is from Stampin' Up! - Thoughts and Prayers. I love this vine of flowers image. I used my SU! markers, and colored on the stamp. I used so saffron and garden green on the leaves, and rose red and taken with teal on the flowers. Used my quickie glue pen to add some dazzling diamonds glitter.

The Raspberry layer is patterned using Papertrey's Retro Backgrounds and Borders set, and the sentiment is from Birthday Basics.

I hope YOU are inspired to go make something to share...be sure to use keyword MTTI03, and link on Lauren's Mr. Linky :).

Just in case *I* have not inspired you enough, take a look at what the rest of the team has done (and this awesome graphic Kristin made!)

Thanks for stopping by -- I'm off to enjoy the weekend!!!

Oooooh! Tracey! Love that pop of yellow behind the vine panel. I always forget to break out of the linear and enhance the curves in a design. Goes great with the elegant vine image. Love the sparkle too!

Tracey I love your take on this - you can see the colors are what inspired you but it has a fun, fresh look to it. Great job girl!

Dawn Easton said...

Oh gosh, hope you are feeling better after your dental app't!!

We used the same stamp set...hehe! Love your colours...especially that you went with Teal...so pretty!

Kristin Bueter said...

TRACEY! WOW!!! I love this stamp set and you did an amazing job coloring it for your card! I really like that you used two colors on the leaves...I didn't even consider doing that the few times I've colored mine with markers! What a gorgeous result! That sparkle and the patterned paper are the perfect additions :O)

Hope you are recovering well from your b-day root canal! Yikes!
