Sparkle Creations Challenge #26: Photo Inspiration

Happy Tuesday everyone! Welcome to a brand new Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps challenge! This week we have a lovely photo from the Pottery Barn for your inspiration, full of lovely pinks and browns, yum!

For my creation I used Celebrating Chloe from our most recent release:

OA PP039 Weathervane 'Chilly Mornings' - Core'dinations PP020 St Valentino cardstock - Spellbinders nestabilities - Woodware corner rounder punch - Copic markers - White satin ribbon - X-cut butterfly punch

I followed the fabulous sketch #98 at Card Patterns for my layout.  I took inspiration from the polka dot suitcases for my DP and pink accent card, and took inspiration from the butterfly suitcases by adding some teeny tiny punched out butterflies in the top left corner.

Sparkle Creations challenge is open to all players. Each week a random winner will be chosen, and they will receive a SCRS rubber stamp. [In order to qualify for a prize, you must use a Sparkle Creations image on your creation.]

Do pop along to my SCRS DT sistahs' blogs to take a peek at their beautiful challenge creations:
