Paper craft project no. 451: Grateful

We have a brand new challenge at Time Out. For the next couple of weeks, it's the Home Sweet Home challenge. Here's the inspiration photo, and a really cool one at that!

I took my cue from the frames on the wall and the flowers that are on the red pillow on the sofa and combined them in my card.  I die-cut the stitched rectangle panel (CUTplorations Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangles) and then die-cut the postage stamp in the middle (CUTplorations Bloom Happy coordinating dies). Then I stamped the daffodils (The Birds and the Blooms) onto the panel and "colored" the centers with a splatter stamp (Art Marks), colored the postage frame with a marker (tan, Aqua Marker), stamped the helenium (Bloom Happy) in the diecut rectangle and then adhered everything onto my card base. I finished by stamping the sentiment (Grateful Beyond Words).

Check out the cards the team + guest designer Stephanie made and then link up your own project inspired by the photo. We can't wait to see your creations!

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to smile :o)
