Creative Inspirations #52

Hey All! It's time again for another challenge over at Creative Inspirations. This week we have the theme of Love, just in time for Valentines Day! This weeks sponsors are Quixotic Paperie and Di's Digi Downloads . I actually made this weeks card to enter a couple of challenges and so it took me forever, but I think it turned out pretty good. I've got a few pics to share, so I'll get one with it...

.... this is 'Love Grows' from LOTV's latest release. Aren't they just the cutest, so love them! Ok, so firstly my card follows the sketch at Papertake Weekly and secondly LOTV's challenge of 'Anything but a Square'. I was gonna try and go for three and do another challenge out there that wanted Valentine's with no pink or red, but it was not happening and I had to scrub it...hate it when that happens!

Here's a close-up. The background is a mix of copics and chalk, the grass is chalk, and the rest is copics. Would you look at how much pink ended up being on this card,lol

I don't usually get my inside done, but I made this extra little fold I wanted to show you. I cut my main pieces with my circut and I didn't want the bent when the card opened so I took a strip of coordinating paper, scored it, folded it, then glued it all down....Now, no bending, Yay!

Here's a close-up of the flowers. These were all colored in some form with copics so they would match.

Almost done, but I wanted to share with you this label I made. I was thinking about buying me one of these stamps, but I thought I'd have one last go at it and I'm quite happy with the end result. Now I can resize it if needed and easily print out a sheet of them. So, if you'd like one you may just be able to do it yourself and save $20, you got nothing to loose if you don't try:)

Lastly, my copics! Boy, is that a list or what! Now I'm pretty sure I used most of these but a couple from the one I scrubbed may have made their way in there, so if it seems really out of place I probably didn't use it, sorry.

That's finally everything I have to say and show. I hope you've enjoyed my card. Be sure to stop by and see what the rest of the DT have come up with. Thanks for stopping by!

Have a great day!

Lovely Autumn, can't believe I didn't get that image on my last order. Then again I have so many stamps that haven't been inked up, it would probably join them. Why do we keep buying knowing this? Hugs Tracy x

That fold is impressive & so is that signature label. I really like the way you have co-ordinated all your colours too . P articularly like your chalked background & how the sneetiment fits over the layers beneath.
