Hi, everyone! After spending several days out of town, spending a lovely Thanksgiving with hubby's Grandma and family, I am refreshed and ready to do some stamping!!! The Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast is my fave challenge and always gives me the creative nudge I need to get started. This week's challenge is to choose an item from GelaSkins......I chose this gorgeous painting from Vincent Van Gogh....the colors are beautiful, plus I wanted to use my new Spellbinders Cherry Blossoms dies for the first time!
I chose some Prima designer paper (Annalee) for the background since it had both blue and green hues. The branches were cut from Creamy Caramel and sponged with Close to Cocoa; the blossoms were cut out of Whisper White and sponged with Barely Banana. The sentiment is from the "Chickadee Ornament" set by Our Daily Bread designs......since this is a birthday card for a friend, I inked up the word "Blessed" (from the "Blessed is the Season" stamp) with a marker.
