Photo Inspirataion

At Make My Monday we are trying something different for us, Mynette has challenged us to find inspiration not only from a book jacket, but if we need to to take the inspiration from the story of the book. If you pop over to the blog you will find a more detailed explanation and of course the final results from the Design Team of how we were inspired. This is my card......

I decided to make a DL card, in the UK this measures approx 7" high and 3.5" wide, I believe the DL is Doubled Length. It was the pretty blossom on the trees, the blue sky and green grasses which first gave me the idea for my card, along with a new stamp from Crafty Inspirations with a pretty girl wearing a poke bonnet. I first heat embossed with white EP a blossom stamp, then brushed on the blue for the sky, the green for the grass. I coloured the blossom with a light pink, the branches and a few leaves. Stamped some grasses at the base of the card and added a sentiment. I stamped then coloured the lady with Promarkers.
