Inspired by

At the papertrey forum, we have a thread called "Post here if you have updated your blog" and when everytime a member post their link, its a new inspiration or idea for me! I love just going through what everybody creates (provided my internet coorperates). Today, I did that in the morning and when I came across "Little Miss T"'s blog, I saw an awesome card she had created using PTI's Distressed Stripes stamp set. She had taken inspiration from the fashion world - Nautical Fashion and incorporated it on the card. I was so inspired by her card that I made a card using the nautical theme and Distressed Stripes. I made use of 2S4U sketch #51 to make the card. Here is the sketch for you.


And here is my card.


Don't the Pure Poppy buttons look Yummy! I love Pure Poppy ribbons and buttons. So glamorous and glowing... And, did you see the ruffled ribbon? I saw Ashley Newell's video and gave it a go. Its gorgeous to look at. Love it too. I am telling you, there is so many inspirations out there to see. learn,  try and make it your own. Very talented people out there willing to share. Thats great!

I have used PTI's Pure Poppy and White cardstock, Distressed Stripes and Masculine Motifs stamp set. Enchanted Evening satin ribbon, Enchanted Evening and Pure Poppy inkpads, Pure Poppy buttons and twine all from PTI.

Finally, I want to thank Little Miss Taheerah for her inspirational card, Ashley Newell for her video and Kazan and Laura for their sketch. Thank you ladies.

Have a great day!

Hugs

Your card is beautiful, Gayatri. Great color combo. I finally received Distressed Stripes in the mail yesterday and hope to ink it soon. ;-)

Gayatri, this is a wonderful card. I'm a sucker for anything nautical so now I must go to my Distressed Stripes set and try to get "nauti" with it. :) Thanks to you and Taheerah for the inspiration! :)
