Tosh's Inspiration

I can't believe how fast these inspiration posts keep sneaking up on me, I started this one yesterday and finished it just a few minutes ago, but it is still the 1st so I am not late :)

I have been following Tosh for a few years now, I just love her style, and as you go through her blog you will see she does Beautiful work, every card has some kind of inspiration for you. This card HERE is the one I picked for my card today.  I loved the shading and the color she used on her flowers, I was so tempted to use the same colors and even border die but I made myself change it up a bit.

I decided to go with a summer feel to the card.

Inkadinkado -- Beauty stems from here, colored w/markers
Spellbinders -- A2 Curved Borders One
Distress inks -- Mustard seed and Antique linen
Basic Grey -- Lilykate paper
Stamps of Life -- Birthday sentiment stamp
Martha Stewart -- Tag punch
Butterfly gem
Craftaroo -- Rhinestones, colored w/marker

If you haven't already seen Tosh's blog I hope you take the time to stop by and check it out!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoy a wonderful weekend,

Tosh's card was gorgeous, and I love this, too, how you changed it up to the blue and ivory. The Inkadinkado flower is fabulous! Love the border and all your sponging. Really awesome card, Connie!

Another lovely, creative, and elegant card. I like what you did with the die cut edge too. I have that and need to use it. Your sponging around your beautiful image really enhances the blues too!
