Blogger's Inspiration Challenge!!!

Good Friday Morning! In fact, it's a great Friday morning!! I have the day off from work...lol! It is a great day to have off because it means that I can post my Blogger's Challenge card on time. Yippee! This week, we were given this photograph to inspire us. Usually, I'm not very good at these kinds of challenges, but I gave it my best shot. I was inspired by the patterns and the colors in the quilt, so I started off with a piece of black and white Doodlebug Designs patterned paper. I cut it up into squares to resemble the quilt pattern. I mounted the squares onto larger squares of white from Papertrey Ink and then onto a layer of black cardstock. I pulled in the color red with a piece of Stampin' Up's Red Grosgrain Ribbon, a Real Red oval under the sentiment (Stampin' Up's Small Sayings), and I stamped the little heart with Real Red ink.
I can't wait to see what the other ladies have come up with! You can check out their creations here. Thanks so much for stopping by today. I'll be back tomorrow with another creation to share with you. I hope that your Friday is a great one too...Toodles! :D
