Elegantly Inspired


Happy April Fools Day! There will be no fooling about here on the blog today, it's all about the elegance! LOL!

I have a card to share today that I have made using this weeks Inspired By Pinterest over on Gayatri's Blog HERE

This is the inspiration piece ...

Now this one stumped me a little & I nearly didn't play along as the Time & Extra Time stamp sets didn't really fit the Elegance of this inspiration. Now I'll let you into a little secret if the next Uniko Studio stamps had been released I'd of been OK! Only 13 days till the peeks start! 

Anyway, back to my card! I decided that if the imagery was not my starting point then the colours could be so this is what I came up with ...

I really quite surprised myself at how well this card turned out! I was originally going to use a simple rounded corner rectangle for the sentiment & then remembered that I had this one from EK Success, which has a more elegant feel to it.

For the sentiment I stamped one half and then the second half below so it would fit inside the frame. I always practice this on a scrap piece of paper first! 

I'm SO glad I had a bash at this challenge & it certainly challenged me to think outside of the box! Until tomorrow ...

Thanks for stopping by today!

  2. Wow! I love that you used the colours for your card, Bev! Those flower like images are just gorgeous especially when layered. Those pearls are nice touch. Love your ultra CAS card :) Thanks so much for joining in the fun again :)

  3. This is a beautiful take on the picture inspiration, and I think there's plenty of scope for elegance in the Time set! Gorgeous card!

  4. Really lovely. Such a mix of styles and elements. End result is lovely to look at.
