A Little Dose of Thursday Inspiration!

As the name of our blog suggests, we are here to challenge and inspire you. Where do you find your inspiration? What prompts you to create?

Today I'd like to share a card that I made as a Featured Designer on the Paper Crafter's Library blog (you can learn more about my process and inspiration by clicking the link HERE). It was such an honor to be asked! And with a craft room full of goodies from My Favorite Things, I knew I'd be able to come up with something fun!

Bejeweled Flamingo Card by Susan R. Opel featuring the Friends Like Us stamp set and the Blueprints 25 and Laina Lamb Designs Flamingos Die-namics #mftstamps

My inspiration came from a pair of fabulous earrings I bought at Charming Charlie (see the foreground of the photo). Those juicy colors make me think of summer, so out came the Flamingos Die-namics and those delicious curves from Blueprints 25!

Want more challenges and inspiration? Head over to the My Favorite Things Blog where all this week we've been holding classes in color  theory. You won't want to miss a minute of instruction and inspiration. For each lesson we are challenging you to show your mastery of the concept taught. And of COURSE, there are prizes to be won for participating!

Now head over to Paper Crafter's Library and tell them that MFT sent you.
