Inspired by Pinterest...

This weeks challenge over at Wee Memories is to be inspired by something you have seen over at Pinterest or Esty.  Well, I'd never visited Pinterest before so had a look....wow so much to be inspired by...
This caught my eye

And inspired this card....

WMC58


I used a Design Block background from Hero Arts ( Wavy Leaf Pattern) and embossed it with white EP.  Sponged on Stormy Sky and Faded Jeans Distress ink.  Added the ribbon, a sentiment and the little crochet flower ( made by me) and the rose (also made by me)

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend.... I may not be round blogosphere much as we are heading off to the beach tomorrow afternoon.  I am taking the laptop but probably won't get much time on it.... Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is the next on my reading list... (just finished HP &The Goblet of Fire)

Cheers

Dawn

Really gorgeous hues of blue, love it Dawn! I haven't seen that wavy leaf stamp in use for a while, a classic background stamp!

A very lovely card Dawn,just using two colours can be so effective.
Using the blue (which is a cool colour), then adding the perfect amount of white makes it clean and clear. The flower element adds class.
Have a relaxing Long weekend.

Isn't Pinterest FUN! I love those fingernails and I especially love your take on their design! That is a favorite older stamp and I really should use it more often. Thank you for sharing this beautiful card inspiration!
