FYI Challenge #15

Greetings everyone!

I'm so excited!  We have another amazing inspiration photo this challenge, and another fabulous sponsor.  This challenges sponsor is none other than the adorable and hilarious Bugaboo Stamps. 

You really should head over to check out their online store.  They have so much to choose from, and some absolutely wonderful stamps.  You can visit them HERE.  They were kind enough to provide each of us with some images to use this challenge, and they are offering 7 free digis to one lucky participant.  Talk about generous!

So, here is this weeks inspiration photo.  For this weeks challenge, click HERE.

I love this photo for several reasons.  First, the colors are very eye catching, all of them.  You're not just drawn to one color, but all of them equally in my opinion.  Next, the textures are gorgeous against those colors.  Lastly, it's a cathedral.  I love old cathedrals.  They're always so beautiful and rustic.  I would love to attend services in a place that looked like this.  Wouldn't you? :)

And now, I give you, my card.

I used a Wee One image from Bugaboo stamps and am quite happy with how my card turned out.  I did struggle a bit, trying to figure out how to incorporate such a cute stamp with a photo that's very elegant looking.  I woke up on Sunday morning and had an idea, so I went with it. lol  Once I started gathering what I wanted to include in my card, things just sort of fell into place.  I wound up using last months SFYTT as it fit what I was looking for, design wise.  I know exactly who will be receiving this card. 

The projects my Lovely Lotuses have created for you today are so stinkin adorable!  You should head over and check them out.  I think you'll enjoy them as much as I do.  They are all so inspiring!

Have a great day!

This is gorgeous, such a sweet image! Love the layered panels and mix of colours too.
Love your blog name by the way, I have the same problem! My hubby said last night after checking the credit card bill, " do you know you spent £xyx on crafting stuff last month?!"
I was shocked, of course, I know I spent way more lol!
