Krafty Chicks Challenge #449 Photo Inspiration

Happy Thursday!

Hope your first week in April is going well.

It's time for a new challenge 
Krafty Chicks Challenge.

Tangii is our hostess this week and she has chosen a beautiful photo for our Twist!

Krafty Chicks Challenge #449 - 
Photo Inspiration
We also have a new Guest Designer for the month --- 
Bonnie Klass of Stamping with Klass.
BOnnie is a very talented cardmaker and happens to live in the same town as me, Cary, NC, even though we first met online when I ordered Stampin' Up supplies from her.  Now, we get together as often as we can to stamp together, try new crafty techniques, eat and gab!  She also has a monthly card class at her home that I attend as often as I can. 
Welcome Bonnie!

Now onto my card ---
I did double duty for this card.  I created it for this challenge and also sent it to my March Pen Pal over at Stamp Nation.  I had been playing around with some coated cardstock and Catherine Pooler re-inkers and baby wipes.  This particular background kind of reminded me of a Monet painting so I decided to use it for my background for this card.  I kept the rest of the card white so the background would stand out.  I used flower dies by Poppy Stamps as well as the scalloped frame.  The "awesome" die is by Catherine Pooler and I piled three of them together then versamarked the top layer to emboss it with Hero Arts pearl powder and then with glitter.

Now stop by the Hen House and see all the other beautiful projects from my fellow Chick Teammates as well as Bonnie's and leave them all some blog love.  And come play along with us and give our photo inspiration twist a try!  Can't wait to see what you create!

Krafty Chick Blessings!

Love that background - such beautiful soft colours. Perfect for the inspiration photo with the gorgeous white flowers and sparkly sentiment.
