Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge-Simplicity

*** Scroll down to the post below or click HERE to see my card for today's SugarPea Designs Sweet Peek! *** 

It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!

We hope you'll play along!  The LEAD of this challenge will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!  Please visit the Curtain Call Challenge blog for all the challenge info and deadline.

Hi card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Papertrey Ink
I took my inspiration from the photo's simplicity theme along with the pencil at the right side of the photo.  My layout is from the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  The layout's two rectangular panels are represented by the pencil and ruler from Papertrey Ink's Teach and Inspire stamp set.  The images were stamped on cardstock scraps, colored with Copic markers, then cut out and arranged on the white panel using foam tape.  

I stamped the "hi" sentiment from the Pencil Me In set beneath the pencil and ruler, selecting a cursive font to bring in the script element from the inspiration photo.  The finished panel was adhered to a kraft card base.

Make sure you visit each of the designers' blogs for more inspiration:
