Feeling Inspired

Despite the fact that I am home with a cold, I am getting a chance to work on some cards. The newest one is based on the latest sketch from Inspirational Card Sketches. By the way, ICS just announced the new members for their design team. I haven’t checked out all of their blogs just yet, but it is on my list of things to do today. Congratulations to all of them.

Now, back to my card:


I started out with totally different papers in mind but somehow my card evolved into this. I am actually pretty happy with how it turned out. I added Stickles to the buttons to mimic the glitteriness of the pink stripe. And, once I decided to use this printed paper, I realized that I already had the green card blank in my stash.

Let’s see if my inspiration continues or not. I have some cards to make for some special people including my dear friend Laura who is getting ready to start a new chapter in her life and my son, Justin, who just headed down to Parris Island for Marine Basic Training.



  1. This is just so sweet. I love the colors. The little glittery buttons are an eye catcher and great addition to the card. Hope you are feeling better!
