Inspiration Challenge is posted!

Good evening everyone!

I am super excited because like I said in my last post, I suggested this week's website for the Inspiration Challenges that is posted at splitcoaststampers every Saturday. Everytime I look at the Kirklands website I see so many neat textures and designs that would make awesome cards. The challenge posted early so I can share my card!

Here is my card for the Kirklands Inspiration Challenge IC276 at splitcoaststampers

This is the trio of vases from Kirkland's that inspired my card:

As soon as I saw these I instantly thought of Stampin Up's Very Vanilla, Marina Mist,
Soft Suede and Early Espresso colors. Then I noticed the flourish looked a lot like the flourish from Elements of style! I love how it turned out! When I showed my husband he was like WOW... that looks just like it!

I needed a good card layout that used panels so I dug through the different card sketch challenges that splitcoast also puts on and ended up using their card sketch challenge #82. Here is the layout:

I had a very hard time picking one thing that I wanted to base a card on... Kirklands is a website I will definately look to for inspiration whenever I am in a slump! Thanks for using the site Stephanie! I look forward to seeing all the talented stampers out there and seeing what they come up with! Be sure to play along!
