Here is my card and hopefully some more inspiration.....
I used the colors green and blue from the photo as my inspiration as well as the green lines running through the picture.
I wanted my card to have the sentiment as the front and center so trying a new technique (at least for me)
I stamped the sentiment from All About You using Memento Tuxedo Black ink as well as Midnight and Moss ColorBox Ink. I am sure there is an easier way to do this but I ended using inking each section then stamping the whole image. It took me several tries....because either one color didn't stamp clearly or one color ended up mixing with another....BUT after all the tries I finally got it to stamp to where I was happy with it :)
Once the sentiment was completed I matted it on Bazzill card stock and ran some decorative stitching around as a frame.
Pulling out my container of washi tape I added this fun pattern along the bottom and to cover the edge I added some green buttons from my stash.
So what do you think??? I hope you like my card and are inspired to play along!

Well that is all I have for you today!!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to see you play along in our challenge!!!
And Have a GREAT Friday!!!
