Inspiration




Remember last week's AAA Cards' Game 3 Inspiration Challenge? Well I must admit that I loved it so much that I may have gone a little crazy. I ended up making 5 cards based on Linda's amazing card!



I didn't want to hog the challenge, so I didn't link these 3 up, but I think they're worth showing to demonstrate how one card can take you in so many different directions!

The first one is the opposite technique of my first card for this challenge. That was 'go big', this one is 'go small'. I used a Papertrey Sentiment and one of Simon's Lots of Dots.

The second one uses a Paper Smooches die, a circle punch and some Doodlebug bling.

The third was made by inlaying rings cut with circle nestabilities and then using a Simon Says Stamp die for the sentiment.

WOW x 3 = Yowzers!

You're on one heck of a creative roll dear friend! Clean and graphic gloriousness! The pink & orange HB card reminds me of the Happy Days logo...but heck, you're likely to young too remember Richie Cunningham!
