LAD Design Team Challenge

Good morning friends! I hope you are doing well today! Are you enjoying the last few weeks of summer, or are you back in school already!? I know of several that have started school already and can't belive it's almost that time again! We've stocked up on school supplies, shopped for clothes and shoes and the kids are patiently awaiting finding out what teacher they will have for the coming year...all sorts of excitement here!

Today is the Lizzie Anne Design Team Challenge. We were supposed to find something that inspired us and then share the photo of it and also the card that it inspired! I was looking through my House Beautiful Magazine(love that one)on our road trip a couple of weeks ago and came across this page...instantly fell in love and knew it was the inspriation I would use for this challenge! Isn't it a great room...love the color combo...surprised!?;)
So, for my card, I used Hawaiian Shores, Summer Sunrise, and a pop of Raspberry Fizz for my color palette. I used the colors as inspiration, but also the layout of the magazine page for my card...paying attention to the pretty curves and such in the fireplace and that awesome frame! I thought this great chair would be a prefect image to use and love how it turned out!!
I used my Houndstooth embossing folder and a layer of Hawaiian Shores cardstock for my main background. I love how it paired up with the houndstooth on the chair...fun, fun, fun!! I rounded the corners of the layer with my corner chomper and then tied a nice white ribbon around it before attaching it to the card base.

I used my Labels 8 nestabilites to follow the curves in the inspriation photo...I cut a white and summer sunrise label and then stamped the chair in raspberry fizz and then added the sentiment in a dark chocolate ink. Both the chair and sentiment are from the August Mix, Turn Towards the Sun.

I attached the frame to the card with dimensionals and then added some summer sunrise colored rhinestones...just a little added bling! The last touch was a pinch of pink tulle and a rapsberry fizz button on the knot of my ribbon.

I hope you get a chance to see what the other DT girls have come up with...I love seeing people share their inspriation!! Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great day!!
