Introducing "Inspired By..." Challenge!

Woohoo! It's finally the weekend! Today Charissa over at Snippets by Design and I are debuting another card challenge, Inspired By...

With this challenge, one of us will pick a picture of something that can inspire us in card making. The photo can be anything from a beautiful nature scene to a fun article of clothing. The cards can contain anything about the photo that has inspired you, for example, colours, shapes, etc. This week's inspiration photo was selected by me: a delicious sushi dish!

From this, I saw lucky limeade, tangerine tango, so saffron, and circles! Here's the card I thought of:

This card displays the quilting technique, running the entire face of the card through the big shot using the square lattice embossing folder. I used the Outlined Occasions stamp set, from last year's Sale-A-Bration, and coloured it with markers. I popped up the entire face plate to add some dimension.

Thanks for looking today and I hope you enjoyed Charissa and I's second challenge. Pop over to her blog and check out how this photo inspired her!
