Hero Arts SNEAK PEEK Inspiration Challenge

Hey All! Today I am sharing a card I have made for this weeks HA challenge over on their blog. This week they are giving Sneak Peeks of their 2009 Holiday Collection. It's exciting to see the new stamps and my Orlando craft shopping list seems to be getting longer! Lol! Hope that Michael's & Joann stock up on HA!

The inspiration for this card comes from Sneak 2 HERE. My inspiration was the colors, light blue, light yellow, a tiny bit of light pink & light brown! I also got inspiration from the scallops and the few polka dots.

I had drawn this sketch out the other day in my sketch & inspiration note pad where I jot down ideas & colors combos and things for when I need a spark of mojo! I looked through my HA stamp collection and found the 'Scroll Tree' that I had not use for a while & thought it fir perfect in this section & color scheme.

I kept this card really simple & as the pink is kept to a minimum along with the scallops it would be a good 'Thanks' card for a man if needed. The yellow layer is stamped with SU! Polka Dots using Barley Banana ink & they are quite subtle.

Card Stock: SU! Almost Amethyst, Barley Banana, Close to Cocoa & Whisper White
Ink: SU! Close to Cocoa, Barley Banana
Stamps: Hero Arts Scroll Tree F4927, Just Wanted CL175, SU! Polka Dots
Accessories: HA Pink Gems, Pink Organza Ribbon, Foam Pads, Fiskars Border Punch

Today I am off down south to stay with my brother for a couple of days. There is much DIY to do on my mums house so that we can eventually rent it out. Also it is the last chance I will be able to go down before we go to Florida at the end of the month. Hope you all have a FAB day!

Thanks for stopping by!
