Clare's weekly challenge - inspiration

This is my card Clare's weekly challenge on the DoCrafts website. This week's challenge was an inspiration challenge.

From the inspiration photo I used the blue background panels with the flowers in front of it as inspiration for the three blue panels on the card. The four colours card candy dots came from the jar lids in the photo.

I begun by stamping the pattern on three panels of blue card. The stamps I used are Birdsong wooden peg stamps by DoCrafts. I used clear VersaMark ink pad and heat embossed the pattern with white embossing powder. I mounted these onto panels of silver card. I also stamped and embossed the greeting and two birds. For these I used the clear Birdsong stamps.

I attached a strip of Papermania blue ribbon to a card blank. I added the greeting and two birds with foam pads. I attached four different colours of card candy to the card with circle foam pads. To finish I added pink Dimension Pearls and crystal Stickles.
