Where's the Inspiration?

What is the starting point for making a card? For me, often times it is a challenge theme. Other times it is a particular stamp that I'm wanting to use. Then, on days like this, it's the designer paper that catches my eye and screams USE ME! 

What's a girl to do? Search her Evernote inventory and find a stamp that works with the paper, of course.

I thought the Deep Red Wild Sunflowers were a nice combination with the beautiful floral paper.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Stamp: Deep Red Wild Sunflowers stamped with Gina K Amalgam Ink and colored with Copic Markers

OH I can't tell you how many times I've done that - picked the paper and then had to find a stamp! (Usually it's the other way around!) This is GORGEOUS, Jeanette! Very home and hearth feel!

I love this card a lot!! The business of your background stamp really highlights the blue, and your image coloured blue is just perfect.
