Hello! Today I have the newest IBSIC challenge to share with you. First up is the 3 inspiration choices you have, use one, a combo or all!

And here is my take:

I chose to be inspired by the colors and polka dots. Oh how I love polka dots! I colored the image from the FOTM: Sweet Pea set using Rembrandt watercolors. I then fussy cut it out and mounted it onto my card base. On my base I heat embossed the polka dots from the FOTM: Aster set in gold embossing powder. The sentiment is from the same set and I stamped it on it's coordinating die cut from Fancy Labels 3.

For my light pink cardstock layer I used the color it with a Copic marker trick so I could match the colors of my sweet peas. I use really cheap cardstock for this so it doesn't use up your nice heavy cardstock. I hope you'll come join us!
Have a great day :)
