CSS Alumni Inspiration Blog Hop

Welcome to another Center Stage Alumni Blog Hop.  If you have arrived from Melissa Cash's blog you are right on track. If not, you can start at the beginning of the hop over at StampTV.com.

Carolina provided us with a Christmas type photo for inspiration.

Here is the inspiration photo:

What a fun photo with some yummy treats. I normally take the route of using colors from an inspiration photo, but this time I just went with the first set that popped in my head. I was actually inspired to make something more wintry than Christmas. I also wanted to make a card I could use as a RAK to someone who belongs to the RAK group over at StampTV.com. When I looked at the inspiration photo the stamp set that instantly came to my mind was Warm and Wonderful, Illustrated by Rupa Shevde. I also used the sketch from Gina's latest sketch challenge over at StampTV.com.


Here is my card:


Now head on over to Miesje Flach's blog for some more inspiration.
