Hello Princess!

Good morning!
We're half way through the work week... are y'all hanging in there or are you already anxious for the weekend to arrive? Me, I'm ready to cut loose a bit, thankfully I've got a couple days off to enjoy! ;)

So last week we had a color challenge at ATS and I said those were one of my fave kinds of challenges, which is true, but this week we've got a challenge that I love even more... a photo inspiration challenge! Lesa has a fab home decor photo for us to play off of and interpret any way we like on our cards or projects. I tend to use the photo's color scheme as my jumping off point and pull papers that have a similar vibe, which is exactly what I did on my card for today. Luckily I still had this Vintage Whimsy paper on my desk from a previous card and all I needed to add to that was a shot of light green to get a look close to the inspiration's. Because the colors and patterns were so super girlie I went straight to the Sweet November Princesses and thought that Arabella would be the perfect fit. My second bit of inspiration came from the vase of mixed flowers in the photo... I decided to follow suit and add a variety of different flower styles and sizes to embellish Arabella's pretty spring-like home. And just like that I had a finished card!

Ok, so I know you want to play along right? Of course you do, because every week there is a new and exciting prize being offered and in order to be eligible to win just be sure that your project includes a stamp that is sold in the All That Scraps store. Whether it is any of our wonderful in house designs or from the various other stamp companies that ATS carries, the choice is yours. Then be sure to link up your creation with Mr Linky by next Tuesday at 10pm est and only one entry per person please!
