Inspired By Guest Designer

Hi everyone! I'm very excited to say that I've been invited to be a Creative Guest Designer at Inspired By All The Little Things today! I'm so honored. It's an amazingly talented team. Please head over to their blog to check out their fabulous creations, plus there is a little 'interview' where you can learn a bit more about me! 

I absolutely love the inspiration photo for this week, and it's no surprise that I was inspired by the luscious floral bouquet. 

Though the flowers in the bouquet are roses, I thought that the layered petals in the blossom of a Ranunculus mimicked them nicely. This is a digi stamp from Power Poppy (my most recent obsession), and I colored them with colored pencils. Up until now I've found that coloring black images are the most difficult, such as a black cat, but coloring white images can be tricky too. I colored mine with a bit of a peachy hue, like the white roses in the inspiration photo. I didn't want to cover up any of this pretty image, so I'll save my sentiment for the inside. 

Stamp Sets: Ranunculus Digital Stamp Set (Power Poppy)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Wild Wasabi (Stampin' Up), Cream (Simon Says Stamp)
Patterned Paper: Here Comes Santa (Doodlebug)
Colored Pencils: Prismacolor
Accessories: White Baker's Twine (Stampin' Up)

Please pay a visit to the wonderful Design Team at Inspired By All The Little Things, and we would be pleased if you played along with the challenge this week, too!

Inky hugs :)

Hi Sandy, another beauty. I finally got myself some (3) alcohol markers. I didn't try them yet. I love this card and your little interview over on Inspired by All The Little Things.
xoxo :)

Dang, I'll have to cross you off my list of friends I wanted to ask to be GD for Inspired! You did a brilliant job with your make for this photo, Sandy! Your card is sensational, so feminine and beautifully colored! I loved the interview, too, and feel like I must now call you Petunia!! Hugs, Darnell

So happy to have you guesting with us this week! I'm also a fan of florals (masculine cards are difficult for me - lol) and I'm really loving your beautiful take on this week's photo!
