Saturday SCS Inspriration Challenge....




This card was made for the SCS Inspiration Challenge... Wow my head is still spinning from all the SCS Comments I've gotten on this card ...32...and still going!!!!

The Inspiration was by Don Li-Leger, his design style is called Asian Fusion. I grabbed my closest stamp set by flourishes and used a flower stem like stamp ... I don't have bamboo,grass or anything else that is Asian inspired but I did have some Asian word stamps so that was a big plus. I was not sure how this card was going to come together I just knew I needed 3 different shapes and 3 different colors, spending most of my time trying to get the colors just right. My three shapes ended up being bigger then I wanted so after I cut them down and placed them on the card, OOPS I saw my cut was a bit off....shhhh don't tell anyone.....


Thanks so much for looking at all my Challenge cards this week!!! I had so much fun being involved that I'm looking forward to giving it all a try again...
