Hello everyone and welcome to the September 2017 Inspiration Challenge post.

Today is the first day of Autumn but instead I will surprise you with a spring inspirational photo! I’d love to know your favorite season of the year?

I took this photo in my kitchen. I really love the pastel colors in this photo with just a touch of a bright purple!

Here is my take on the September Inspiration Challenge:

I used Altenew’s newest Doodled Lace Cover Plate Die and toned it using a blending tool and Crisp Dye Inks- Frayed Leaf, Ocean Waves and Pinkalicious.

For the card base I chose coordinating to our color combo Woodgrain Powder Cardstock.

I adhered only the frame of the cover plate die-cut to left dimension of the lace look and added some glitter accents on the flowers.

For the sentiment I chose a little one from the newest Sweet Friend stamp set that I heat embossed with the Pure White Crisp embossing powder on a piece of cardstock blended with Pinkalicious Crisp Ink.

Hope you liked both: the inspiration photo and the card I prepared for you today!

Have fun in September with our Challenge and share your creations with us!
