OSC Photo Inspiration DT Card

This card was so fun to make. Gina gave us a great photo inspiration challenge over at One Stop Crafts this week and I fell in love with the colors and was inspired by the palm fronds coming in from the side of the photo. The pic looks like the perfect setting to sit with a good friend. My life is blessed abundantly with good friends, and if you can believe it, a few who do not share my love for crafting! Trust me, I've tried to sway them over with glitter and glue guns, but to no avail. LOL. I have a special friend in mind to receive this card and I know she'll love it. I hope you are inspired by some of the great challenges that helped me create this card. If you join us at OSC this week, you could win some FREE digis from Robyn's Fetish. Hope to see you there!

Image Detail

See how the image is all one layer with the background? Just cut out a stencil and stick it down (I used SU 2 way glue pen to create the 'post it note' type of sticky that held, but didn't stay); then stamp in your image. I sponged the blue sky.
