PDE Challenges #16 – Photo Inspiration

Here is a photo to inspire your crafting this week for Pause Dream Enjoy Challenges!

She’s such a sweet, adorable cow!!  You’d think she’d inspire me to create a masterpiece, but I just couldn’t get into a cow project.  I have lots of cow images to work with and even designed multiple projects using those images, but never got up the gumption to actually make any of them.  She just wasn’t doing it for me.  Luckily, inspiration finally struck when I realized there was more than just a cow in the picture!  There is also a pretty daisy and my favorite color, brown!  So I decided to make a brown card with a daisy on it.   A quick search on my computer turned up a couple daisy images and I decided to go with a modified version of Bird’s Daisy Edge Card.   Here it is:

Using the mirror feature on Silhouette Design Studio, I made the whole card a shape card.  I did use vellum as Bird did but instead of coloring it with markers, I left it plain but did a paper-piecing on the inside that shows through when the card is closed.  You can see the muted colors in the photo above.

I applied the glue to each piece and adhered it to the inside of the card through the opening in the front.

A pretty brown felt ribbon completed the card!  Hop on over to the PDE Linky Party and check out how the photo inspired my DT sisters.  I hope it inspires you, too!  🙂
