It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC76)! This week Barbara Anders is the host. Barbara is challenging us to an Inspiration Challenge! Barbara has chosen one gorgeous picture to get inspired by for our cardmaking. You can obviously recreate the look or be inspired by the colors or other elements in the photo. We would love to see what you create!

This card is for today's SCS Color Combo Challenge(CC280)!  Rose Olive Parfaits! Check out the link to find out how to play and all about the dessert option!

This card is also for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge(MMSC63)!

This card is also for Crazy 4 Challenges(C4C46).  Buttons!  I actually layered two on the sentiment tag.

First of all, who does NOT love some stainglass?  Combine the Beauty Within stamp set with a Spellbinder's Labels ELEVEN nestabilities and you have a perfect match!  And, this is only one of the images in the set.  Fabulous detailing and still easy to cut out and pop up!  I layered another Spellbinder's die cut with the Labels Eleven to create more drama so to speak.  I added a SU texture background and softly sponge the edges of all the white cardstock with Memento Sand Ink.  This ink color is amazing for giving a vintage edge without looking muddy.  As always, I am using Flourishes Classic Cardstock in white today.  I also colored my image with Flourishes Copic Color Collections! 

Check out the other blog team designers to see what they created with the inspiration picture!
