The Challenge 90-Celebrate

The Challenge is back with a new papercrafting challenge to inspire you! This week we're featuring an inspiration challenge based on the elegant chair in the photo above.

Celebrate card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Paper SmoochesMy card incorporates the chair's color scheme and floral motif.  My flowers are from the Paper Smooches Lovely Thoughts stamp set.  I stamped them in white pigment ink on vellum, then heat embossed them before coloring the back side of the vellum with Copic markers.  It gives the flowers a pretty stained glass look.

After cutting them out, I adhered the flowers and leaves to a white panel with a strip of orange cardstock along the bottom.  The orange cardstock was edged with a line of super sparkly silver glitter tape.  I love that the glitter on this tape doesn't flake off!  For the sentiment, I stamped the word "celebrate" from the PS Bold Buzzwords set on the orange cardstock in black ink. I thought about adding a few sequins or enamel dots, but in the end, I decided to let the flowers alone be the stars of the show. The finished panel was adhered to a coordinating pink card base.

Check out what the rest of the talented team at The Challenge has created based this week's inspiration photo.  Here's where to find them:
