Inspiration challenges are my very favorite! Not only do I love to re-create part of the inspiration piece, but it's a blast to see others' creativity as well! This week's Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast is to choose an item from the Plaid Pony Vintage shop......such a fun store to browse! So many of the clothes, jewelry, and housewares remind me of my late grandparents and great-grandparents....such bittersweet memories! I fell in love with this Vintage 3 Strand Rosette Necklace with rosebuds and pearls (photo below left).....it reminded me of Basic Grey Porcelain designer paper which I haven't used in quite some time!
I have also used the following challenges in the making of this card:
Gloria's Sketch Tuesday Challenge at Christian Paper Crafts (photo above);
Jen's Color Monday Challenge at Christian Paper Crafts: pinks and greens;
Daring Cardmakers: "We Three"...use three of something...I used three scallops, three panels, three papers...that's three of threes!!;
Get Sketchy: find inspiration in your house.....the photo above right is from my dining room;
Something Completely Different: Numbers....there are numbers in the scripture stamp;
AI Factory: Bring on the Bling;
Meljen's Designs: Sparkle, shine, foil, bling, etc....please see the close-up pic below to see the shimmer from the Glimmer Mist....boy, that stuff is hard to photograph!;
Fab & Funky Challenge: Forget Me Not.....I forgot about this Basic Grey Porcelain paper!;
Freshly Brewed Designs: Show Off Your Style....my fave creations are floral, frilly, with Zva Creative pearls and Glimmer Mist...and of course my fave scripture stamps from Our Daily Bread designs!;
