Paper Sundaes Week #11 Photo Inspiration Challenge

Happy Sundae! Thanks for stopping by and thank you for all your encouraging comments on my last post. I am really going to try to find some mojo for layouts - I have so many fun photos just waiting to find their permanent home on a page.....I've been working on building up my stash of cards so that I can carve out some time to do a few layouts. We'll see how it goes...

This week's challenge at Paper Sundaes is a Photo Inspiration challenge and I just love this photos that was chosen to inspire us! Our sponsor this week is Jenny from Paper Jewels and this week's winner will recieve 2 Sweet Pea stamps. Jenny also carries the adorable Bildmalarna stamps - if you haven't seen these, go check them out, just adorable!

Though I love this photo and find the Sweet Peas beautiful, I have to confess that I had a hard time with this challenge. These images are new to me and of a different style than my usual and I had some trouble matching papers to the copics that I had that matched the colors in the inspiration photo. Or maybe my mojo just took a hike....

In any case, I did enjoy stamping the background for this one (a little difficult to see) and then covering the background panels with a layer of Irridescent glimmer mist - this stuff is so fun! I didn't add a sentiment as I didn't want to distract from the image.

Hope you can join us and play along this week. Be sure to visit my fellow DT members - they have made some truly gorgeous cards showcasing a variety of Sweet Pea images.

Enjoy your Sunday!
