Shiny Inspiration

Hi friends!  It's time for another Viva la Verve! challenge over in the Verve forum.  This week is inspiration week so you can use the sketch, the inspiration picture or both.  I was so inspired by the picture Teresa picked (see below) that I just had to make a card for Kellan using it as inspiration.  If you saw my post last week, I made a card for Trevor to commemorate his starting to walk, and well, it just wouldn't be fair to not have one for Kellan, right?  {grin}

For the inspiration challenge, I picked out a few things from the picture... lots of white space, aqua and green and black and white chevrons.  My card is super CAS with a sentiment from Shining Starstamped onto pistachio pudding.  There's a bit of soft sky behind that has been embossed with a stars embossing folder.  The border is just a portion of one of the dies from the Scalloped Trim Trio Die Set and I finished off with a bow using some new SU! ribbon and a few rhinestones.

The Shining Star set is 30% off during our sale this month, and I might be a little partial, but it's one of my favorite sets from the last year.  Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you find a little time to get creative with this week's VLV!
