Just Inspirational goes live !!!!

Today sees the launch of a new challenge blog Just Inspirational Challenge blog, and I'm thrilled, and honoured, to be part of the fab DT. For a few of us its the first time we've been on DT's so thanks to the lovely Kelly S for giving us the opportunity!

The theme this week is to use a photo chosen by Kelly S as inspiration, can be the colours, trees, leaves - anything which the photo inspires you to create!

This is my card for the first challenge - and my first ever DT card! There's been more than a few nerves and chewed fingernails but despite that I really enjoyed doing this - even though the colours are a million miles away from my usual choice!

The image is 'Ava flower patch' from our sponsor for this week Bugaboo Stamps
printed and coloured with promarkers, papers are downloads from Shabby Princess 'Harvest Spice', and Summer Driggs 'Golden Sunshine'.
Kanban 'Distressed scrolls' card for the swirls, flowers are petaloo.

There's loads of great challenges coming up, new challenges are posted every Thursday, so if you want to join us, and meet the rest of the team check out the blog here . Looking forward to seeing all your fab creations x
