Make My Monday #13: Photo Inspiration

Okay, I was a bit of a rebel this week for my MMM card. I DID use the above photo for inspiration, but I knew that most entries would have a bird cage, and so I purposefully did NOT use one. Instead, I used the colors of the photo to inspire me more than the overall picture. :)

Before I show my card, I just want to send warmest regards to the ladies of Make My Monday and tell them how incredibly thankful I am that they have chosen me for Top Three two weeks in a row--thank you! I really needed it more than you will ever know. Okay, now to the card...

Here it is!~

I embossed the bird image and the EVERYTHING part of the sentiment in silver to match the centers of the flowers.

Here's a closer look at those two details~

I had so much fun putting flowers and leaves together for this card! I purposefully wanted the leaves to spill over the edges because the flowers in the photo look like they are almost hanging off the table.

A closer look at the flowers~

Thank you so much for taking a little bit of time out of your day to come and look at my blog! You are awesome! I hope you're inspired to create something of beauty today! Happy crafting!

My fellow DT have said it, you deserve to have been placed in the Top 3. This week I like your card for it's simplicity yet it is very detailed, with the bird and the flowers, beautiful. Again many thanks for your continued support at MMM. Caz
