Once again the scrapbooking store at The Curve, Papier is having another blog challenge. This time it is photo inspiration challenge.
What we have to do is to create a card or a layout based on the photo below. Be inspired by the colors, patterns or the shapes in the photo.

Since I’ve never done an easel card before, I decided to make one for this challenge.
Initially it was a real challenge for me to come out with something related to the photo. What I have in mind is to use the colors in the photo. I browse through all the patterned papers in my stash to check whether any of them has the color combination and I found one by My Mind’s Eye. It is Magnolia #MG1020 Serene “Dream” Floral/Teal.
I also want to use the crochet flower and edging that I handmade especially for this challenge. I inked the Bohemian chipboard in flower shape in Aspen Mist, inked its edge in Ocean Depth and then applied Jo Sonja Opal Dust on it. It took me a while to wait for the glitter glue to dry before I could test with the blue crochet flower.
I didn’t have any stamp that is suitable for the card sentiments so I used K&Company Amy Butler Belle Quilted Words stickers. I am always fond of cards with motivational sentiments. Not sure who I will post this card to this time..hehe!
Oh, I am so happy that I finally get the chance to use one of the journalling pages from MM Noteworthy notebook. The silver sentiment “be an original” is from Making Memories Charmed Phrases.
Once I have finished making the front card, I added Prima crystals to the layout inside of the card. I never thought that making an easel card is that easy. Next time I hope to make one in round shape.
I couldn’t get a good full view of the card for a picture. But I hope this will do to show how the easel card looks like once folded up.
