Polka Dot Door Blog Hop & Inspirational Challenge

Hey hey!  Today is a busy on here on the ol' blog, so buckle in!  Rebecca and Sarah have so kindly invited me back for another month of fabulous inspiration at The Polka Dot Door and I am the first stop on the hop.  I loooove their inspirational photo collages and this one is no exception.  I encourage you to play along, as there will be prizes from some fabby sponsors such as Scrap Eco ChicAbbey and Ellie and Hydrangehippo!  


For my card today, I pulled out those gorgeous primary colors from the Fiestaware dishes on the wood table along with the greenery.




Starting with a white panel, I stamped the fabulous Hero Arts cling stamp, Garden Bouquet in Grass from Amuse.  I then cut strips of patterned paper and tied around some twine, added a button and rounded the corners.  I adhered it to a Kraft card base with foam adhesive.




Here is a look at the inspirational picture:

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!


Lindsay
