Inspiration Gone Askew

usc_usc24_tbuLet me start by saying that I love this card. Really, I do. I think it is fun, and bright, and cheery, and will make someone smile. So to the end, I captured the spirit of the inspiration piece for today’s Unity Challenge. But other than that – not a hint of the picture can be found in my card, lol. Oh well! Sometimes you start in one direction and end up somewhere totally different – but the journey sure was fun!

I have totally been in love with square cards as of late – I don’t know why. I’ve never really made them at all. But suddenly, every card that shows up in my head is square, lol. So thanks for hanging in through my “square phase”.  I used both the December and January Unity Kits of the Month for this card. I have to admit, I am in love with this “Whateva” sentiment. It is just….perfect. Come to think of it, most Unity stamps are!

tulipsI used Memento Tuxedo Black ink to stamp my images, and Copics to color them. The card itself is pretty darn simple – I did sponge and distress the edges of the peacock panel. The little tassels were on clearance at (yuck) Wal Mart and I couldn’t pass them up.

My dp is from Jacksonbelle Embelllishments. It is the Vivid pattern from the About a Boy line. It is fabulous, and I need to own more of it. Remember to check this post below, because I am giving some away! All you have to do is CASE a member of the Jacksonbelle team, and link your creation back to this post from yesterday. If you win, you get a prize package wirth $25 of goodies that I picked out for you!
