Picture Inspiration at H2H

Welcome to this week's challenge at Heart 2 Heart Challenges!  This week we are having a Picture Inspiration Challenge.

Wait until you see the beautiful picture that we are using for our inspiration.

Picture Inspirations are so much fun. You look at the picture and interpret it in your style.  You may find that you want to use the colors, the pictured item, or the feel of it in your artwork.  It is all good.

In my card, I picked up the color of the flowers in my flower, the bird that could have been in the birdcage,and the doily and the sparkle flourishes for the airiness that I see in the picture.

My card is made from the paper in the CTMH Buzz and Bumble paper pack.  I cut the doily out of Creme Brulee cardstock with our Cricut Artiste cartridge at 4 1/2".  My little birdie is stamped with our Fabulous You Stamp Set (C1533) and colored in with our waterbrush and our Sunset, Champagne, Cocoa, and Sweet Leaf Inks.

Here is a closeup of my card:

I finished off my card with a Sparkle Flourish and a pretty flower with a glimmer button.

So now it is your turn!  I hope that I have inspired you to create your own artwork using our Inspirational Picture.  After you finish your artwork please go to  www.heart2heartchallenges.blogspot.com and post a link to your project.  I cannot wait to see what you make!
