FYI Challenge #31

Hello!

I hope everyone is doing well!  It's the first Thursday of the month, which brings us our next For Your Inspiration challenge.  For all of the details, click HERE.


This photo is one of my favorites.  I love the color blue.  Paired with this evening photo of the Coliseum, it's absolutely wonderful!  I love the architecture and the contrast of the bold colors, all together.  I'm wishing I were there to see it for myself.


I love how my card turned out.  This color combo is one of my favorites.  I used the Love Conquers silhouette digi from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with my distress inks and with a couple of pearls added.  I used some polka dot patterned paper, a doily and a bow and called it done.  I used THIS sketch, flipped on its side. 

Don't forget to stop over and see what my Lovely Lotuses have created for you today.  We're sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps, and there are some digis up for grabs too.

Hugs!
