Finally Friday over @ SPCC & I'm the Guest Host for the Challenge!

Morning! Well today is exciting because I am hosting a Finally Friday Challenge over on the SPCC blog. As I didn't make the design team Samantha asked if I would host a challenge & I said YES of course!!

If you head over to SPCC you will see the challenge & get to know a little about me thats if don't already know enough! I thought I would use an image from one of my Favorite Design Books to inspire everyone & me for this challenge. The book is called 'Think Colour' & it's by Tricia Guild of Designers Guild in London.

The colors in the photo really stood out to me & the flowers also & below is the card I created using the picture as my inspiration!

I used a SU! set called Beautiful Blooms. For some reason I found this two step stampin' set quite hard but in the end I got it how I wanted it!

The 'Just For You' sentiment is from Hero Arts. I tied jute around the pink layer & then matted it to the kraft card stock. The blue & cream layers are matted & adhered using foam pads. I loved the simplicity of this design with a crisp clean which are the feelings I got from the photo above.

Card Stock: SU! Bashful Blue & Pretty in Pink, PTI Kraft and Cream from Stash!
Stamps: SU! Beautiful Blooms, Hero Arts Warm Wishes CL243
Ink: SU! Old Olive, Pretty in Pink, SU! Markers in Rose Red & Always Artichoke
Accessories: Jute, Foam Pads, Stamp-a-ma-jig

Thanks for stopping by & be sure to check in over at SPCC & post your entry into the challenge! It would make my day even more special!!
