I love, a love, a love, my Calendar Girls from SCS! Here we are in ANOTHER year. Wow! I am so happy to be be a part of this awesome group of girls. They are creative, fun and well ... pretty awesome!
Jeanette, is our hostess for the January round. Her challenge to us was to use a photo for inspiration for our card creation. Sssshhh don't tell anyone, but I have never done that! Off I went to search...
While I love photography, I cannot claim rights to this great picture. I liked how the colors were so bold, yet subtle with the soft yellow and purple turning to blue. It made me think of some grandma DP that I have. You know I love me some grandma paper!!! This particular grandma paper has raised embossing....♥♥♥
I dug around and rooted up the DP I was thinking of and some coordinating card stock. I then knew I had to use the layout that I wanted to CASE from, Barb. It is the best layout!!! Here is Barb's original card. Thinking of Barb, reminded me of some cute little green borders that she had gifted me in the past, so I had to dig them out, cut them up and use on this card as well. So, my card is a wee bit different than her original card.
I hope that I did Barb's layout some justice and did my first photo inspiration correctly! You know that I had to listen to some tunes while crafting this one. Having nothing to do with grandma paper I had to listen to Blue Orchid by The White Stripes. Before you know it, your foot is tappin'! Obviously the video is not that great, but I am fascinated in how she walks in those shoes and I like the song!
