Cure for the Monday Blues Challenge No. 34

Thursday, November 13, 2014

Happy Thursday fellow Scrappers and Crafters,

I recently came across a lovely, creatively inspirational blog called Fill Your Paper With the Breathings of Your {Heart}. Every Monday, Taheerah, post a weekly inspirational picture to get the creative juices truly needed on Mondays. This is my first time playing in a challenge where a picture inspires me to create and I was honestly looking forward to playing along. This week's picture inspiration, Child's Play, is filled with geometric shapes and lovely pastel colors...a true eye catcher.

My card incorporates both the colors and the geometric landscape of the room. And with Christmas only a few week's away, I pushed the creative envelope and created a pastel winter scene instead of using traditional Christmas colors.

The little houses were cut using Taylored Expressions, Neighborhood Border die. I loved finding a new way to use my border die... as it opens up more creative options to me. The rolling hills is another Taylored Expressions die, Build A Scene (Rolling Hills), and then the die cuts were embossed with Provo Crafts' embossing folder, Swirls. The winter trees were die cut using Taylored Expressions, Build A House die set (a true must have die collection). A little Wink of Stella applied to the swirls and orange sherbet twine complete my card.

Thank you for stopping by.
