Be Inspired and Beate....!

We had a beautiful inspiration challenge this week!!! - well they are always fun and always the most gorgeous-est (hmm) inspirational photos EVERY week!!

Sometimes I feel inspired and sometimes I don't - and today I did!!

I combined this first card with Beate's sketch challenge, WSC49, because it was in the plan for today... LOL! yeh, like I ever have a plan.....

I started this card by stamping the flowers from Papertrey Ink's Spiral Bouquet and making a background on Stamper's Select white cardstock. (Have you noticed a trend lately ?- I'm lovin' making the backgrounds!)

I cuttlebugged the middle portion with the Swiss dot cuttlebug folder and layered a pieced of boughten designer paper for the third panel.

I cut out my circles with the plain circle and scalloped circle nestabilities and stamped the sentiment from Silhouette Blooms.

I added some sparkly white brads at the bottom and then traced over the words with the copic spica pen. In real life, this is so sparkly and pretty!

Have a great day!! I just cut the grass and I LOVE that smell of freshly mown grass! So VERY summery and full of promise! Now, I may not be so kind about the grass when I am cutting it twice a week due to fertizlier and rain.....but right now - it's all good!!

    This Card reminds me of the song off of "Cinderella"

    "Something that goes like this"
