Happy Hello

Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps.  This week we have a beautiful inspiration photo for you:
No photo description available.

And here is the card I created:
Phew!!  Inspiration photos are probably my least favorite challenge; I have a hard time mixing colors, but I am really happy with how this one turned out.  I was inspired by (obviously) the little bunny and the dark gray, dusty pink and cream colors out of the color combo.  I stamped the bunny on cream card stock so I wouldn't have any shocking white around the edges when I fussy cut him out.  All the papers were cut from scraps and the ribbon was the last bit on the roll--just enough!  I added a little heart charm to add to the spring feel.  Below is a close up of the sweet little bunny; so cute and so happy with his armload of clover!

Thanks for stopping by!  Make sure you head on over to The House blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has done with this photo.  And if you "need" any of the stamps I used, check out my 10% off your entire order coupon code over in my lift sidebar.

I struggle with inspiration challenges too --- maybe that's why it's called a "challenge?" (smile)
I love the pretty card you came up with -- your layout is super fun and I love those stripes and that sweet little charm!

Cheri said...

I never would have known inspiration challenges truly challenge you....this is a stunning interpretation of the board and a billiant card design. Well done, Heather!

Oh how sweet - and this bunny says spring - I know it is coming (soon I hope).
The coloring on the bunny is so pretty and colored on cream cs- perfect.

Hi Heather,
I saw this at WAW when I linked yesterday and thought, "That looks like this week's Atlantic Hearts Sketch". I love that sweet bunny and the muted color palette. It creates such a soft and pretty look.
Thank you for playing along with the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!
