Hello everyone!

Debby here today with this month’s Inspiration Challenge and a bold pop of colored focal point to chase away the winter blues.

The photo for today’s graphic was taken last spring in the Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh. It’s an Azalea flower, but as I didn’t have an Azalea stamp, I chose another with prominent stamens, the Hibiscus.

HIBISCUS BOUQUET

The inspiration graphic inspired me to plan out a card with a dominant floral focal point. I stamped elements from the Hibiscus Bouquet set in clear embossing ink on a Kraft card and then colored the image with pencils.

I added a few white gel pen dots to the flower center for highlights. For the sentiment, I die cut a Script Word ‘love’ from an Ivory card and foam mounted it over the flower. I added a coordinating sentiment by white heat embossing ‘and hugs’ from the Sketchy Floral set on a Black card, trimming it to a skinny banner and then foam mounting.

Finally, I added the colored panel to an Ivory card base and added sequins to accent.

I look forward to seeing what inspires you from this graphic.
