Addicted to Stamps & More Challenge #110 - Photo Inspiration

Hi there blog friends ~ We are back with another fun challenge this week at Addicted to Stamps & More, and this time, we have a beautiful inspiration photo for you! 

When I looked at this photo, the color palette screamed ‘Vintage’ to me, so I just went with it and created this card:

             
 Since I had these flowers in my stash for quite a while, I decided to start with the rose. I added leaves from the SSS/Mama Elephant 'Summer Garden’ stamps and dies, and a sentiment from the 'Bountiful Blessings’ set, also from Mama Elephant.

I hope you will take a peek at the ATSM Blog ~ My teammates have created some really amazing cards, which I hope will inspire you to join in the fun!

And, don’t forget, we always have a wonderful sponsor, and for this challenge it’s QKR Stampede, who is offering the winner of this challenge 3 digi stamps! 






Thank you so much for stopping by ~
Barb
