Inspiration Challenge

I'm down to the wire again! I'm participating in an online "inspiration challenge" mingle which is due the end of the month. Well, technically I guess I have one more day...

The original inspiration piece was this darling ruffled flower pillow. I love the color combination and the flower.

Here is the project I made for my partner. It's a small chipboard hanging painted "Tiffany blue" and covered with two coordinating cream, brown and blue patterned papers. I used my new EK Success border punch on the center border and stamped some flourishes. The C monogram is pearl art metal embossed with the Cuttlebug and mounted on chipboard. The flower was made with several layers of sewing pattern tissue folded in a strip and then cut along the folded edge with my new Martha Stewart fringing scissors. The strip was then coiled into a flower shape and glued to the monogram.

Gotta get this in the mail!
