Thought Of You Today... (H2H Inspiration Challenge)

This week at the Heart 2 Heart Challenge blog, there is an inspiration challenge going on. 

And this is our inspiration (below):

I took the bright summery colors from the inspriation photo and ran with them for my card.   I also decided to make it a long card (4" x 8 1/2") because of the way the inspiration photos are displayed in a long row.

I've had this Smiles stamp set that I used on my card for quite a while now, but I haven't played with it much (I think like once...), so I pulled it out to put it to some use today.  It's a very cute, whimisical set.

Until next time, happy creating!  :)

Supplies used (all CTMH unless otherwise noted):
Paper:  White Daisy, Pear, Sunny Yellow, Tulip, Ocean CS
Stamp:  Smiles
Inks:  Pear, Sunny Yellow, Tulip, Ocean, Sorbet, Black
Embellishments:  Sunny Yellow button, Crystal Blue waxy flax
Punch:  1 1/4" circle
Other:  Paper crimper (Fiskars), 3D foam tape, Paper piercer

What a bright & beautiful card Vicki! Who wouldn't be delighted to have that show up in their mailbox. =) I may be scraplifting so I can send a few smiles to some deserving friends. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us at H2H!
