if not head on back there to get all their info on the Be Re-Inspired Challenge

Phew... that was lots of info so I am sure you are ready to see my card!
this is where my inspiration came from..
hehehehe..I used the colors blue, yellow and red and those adorable sunglasses and here is what came out of that
The papers I used for this card came from My Minds Eye~Moments paper pack (I think one of my favorites!) 
The adorable little monster and sentiment is from TAWS~Gotta Bug stamp set and the border stamp is from TAWS new March release~Pillow Talk.
See his CUTE shades??? I used another stamp set from TAWS new release~ Words to live By and took the border scallop stamped it on white cardstock and cut out only to make it look like some shades
I added some stickles to a few of the shapes in the border stamp and tied the whole card together with some gorgeous 3GJ crinkle ribbon in Sunflower.
So that it my take on the inspiration~ I sure hope you play along with this fun cross promo challenge!!

Now into your next stop .....................
