An Inspirational SFYTT

I have a tiny confession to make...last night when I saw the Inspiration Challenge come up, I SWEAR to you, I went through every single item of clothing on the site trying to make a card that I already had made LAME-O is that!! By the time I got done looking, I had spent an hour trying to find the perfect picture(this is what I ended up using) and ended up never finding anything that would work(for my other card, of course). This card I finally ended up making today...only took about 45mins...FIGURES(and also works for the Limited Supplies challenge, YEEEEEHAAAWWW)(okay, now I actually read the directions and my brads and buttons are NO NO's, so never mind, LOL)!!! With all that said...I am SO HAPPY with the end results of this card. I used a retired set from SU, Polka Dot Posies. I stamped my flowers with Pacific Point ink on Bashful Blue card stock. I then cut out around the flowers and added a Kiwi Kiss button in the center. I did thread some white taffeta through the button cute!! I used Kiwi Kiss satin ribbon for the flower stems. For the base, I used Pacific Point, Bashful Blue, Kiwi Kiss and Whisper White. The DP is from the Kiwi Kiss patterns pack. I ran the white panel through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder. My white brads are from Pink Hedgehog Paper Crafts, and for the corners, I put a Pacific Point punched circle underneath them to make them pop. The sentiment from the SU hostess level one set "Best Yet", which was stamped with Pacific Point, was punched out with my SU circle punch along with it's layers. Of course, no card of mine would be complete without a spiral clip with various ribbons on it(all from SU). As you can tell from the title, this card was made using Jen's Sketch For You to Try too!! Well, that is it for me for now...I really need to get some stamping done today(and tomorrow for that matter), so WISH ME LUCK!!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend(and maybe, just maybe, the FS will have a card I can use my card as a CASE for....yep, that's how I roll)!!
