Photo inspiration

Hi there! I hope Blogger will behave and will post this when it's supposed to. I scheduled this post because I'm enjoying my days with my friend  from The Netherlands and don't have time to be online. :D

Our new challenge at Crafty ribbons challenge blog just started and it was Mandy's turn to choose a theme and she chose "photo inspiration". And look this fabby photo she chose for the inspiration.

This gives you so many possibilities ... You can use colours as inspiration, flowers, you can create something vintage and chabby chic ... I love this pic. :) We have a fab prize for the lucky winner too. Hop over to the challenge blog to see what it is. ;)

And here's what I created for this challenge ...

I chose colours for the inspiration (I LOVE pastels) and I also wanted to created something a bit more shabby chic, though I am not sure if I actually managed to do this. lol The blue papers are from Provo Craft and the green paper is from Heidi Grace. The pink paper is from my stash. The string with beads is also from my stash and so are the crystals. I made the pins myself. The butterflies, stars and flower were made with my craft punches. I also used my border punch. The ribbons are from Crafty ribbons - I used the baby ribbon - dots/pearl pink and 25 mm sheer ribbon - dk lime.

I hope you'll come play with us. We always love seeing your creations. :) Hugs! xx
