A Note to Brighten Your Day

I'm up on the SugarPea Designs blog today, sharing a bit of sweet SPD inspiration for you.  My card  was inspired by SPD's new Mix it Up Challenge.  This weekly challenge includes both a sketch and an inspiration photo--you can use either one or combine both, like I did here.  There's a great prize for one randomly selected player at the end of the month, so be sure to check it out!

Just a Note to Brighten Your Day card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from SugarPea Designs
I used the floral patterns and elements from the inspiration photo's color scheme on my card.  The sketch's circle panel is represented here by the wreath from the Funky Wreath-All Seasons set.  I stamped it on kraft cardstock using brown ink, then cut it out with the matching SugarCuts die.  It's decorated with flowers from the Funky Wreath-Spring Addition stamp set.

I used foam tape to adhere the wreath to an aqua cardstock panel with a strip of dotted aqua paper across it.  I wanted to bring in a dotted element since there is a fun dotty pillow in the inspiration photo.  The "just a note to brighten your day" sentiment from the Whatever the Weather stamp set was stamped in bright coral ink on a yellow SugarCuts Stitched Flag die cut.  I adhered the sentiment just beneath the wreath. The finished panel was adhered to a soft green card base.

Be sure to check out the creations that some of my other SPD teammates are sharing today on their blogs:
